The Enchanted Words of the Hupd’äh of the Amazon – Masters of knowledge, narrated by Renato Athias : This film directed by Mina Rad and edited by Isabel Castro was completed during this pandemic period and is about the traditional knowledge of the Hupd’äh people from the Northwest of Amazon, based on the narratives of three chiefs of clans, Bihit, Casimiro and Mehtiw through the ethnographic archives collected by the anthropologist Renato Athias. This knowledge presented in the film helps to debate human and non-human relationships in the current context of our societies.
