Two filmmakers portray life in the village and in the mission of Sangradouro, Mato Grosso: Adalbert Heide, an eccentric German missionary that two filmmakers portray life in the village and in the mission of Sangradouro, Mato Grosso: Adalbert Heide, an eccentric German missionary, that soon after the contact with the Indians, in 1957, starts to film with his Super-8 camera; and Divino Tserewahú, a young Xavante filmmaker, that produces films for television and cinema festivals since the 90s. Shifting between complicity, competition, irony and affect, they give life to their historical records, revealing peculiar backstages of indigenous catechization in Brazil. Sponsored by the NC Latin American Film Festival.
