MARTÍRIO

Martírio

A documentary that shook Brazil. Since the 1980s, the director Vincent Carelli has been shooting the injustices. In Martírio, he focuses on the desperate situation of indigenous Guarani-Kaiowá of Mato Grosso do Sul caused by ever expanding agribusiness. The film takes us to the dark core of the land-use mechanism, reflecting the absence of state support, while showing the never-fading struggle of the indigenous people for their own existence and rights. In the historical context, it reflects on the value of life and culture of the Fourth world. A careful study of an example of struggle for survival, where one side does not hesitate to use bullets, the other ritual singing. A film shot from the “inside” and by the indigenous people themselves, juxtaposed with statements from the “top”.
