SYNOPSIS:

Guided by ayahuasca chants, GREEN RIVER. THE TIME OF THE YAKURUNAS is a poetic journey into the depths of the Amazon. The film explores the perception of time in three small villages intertwined by the flowing waters of the Amazon river, immersing the viewer in a landscape inhabited by shamans and archetypical societies.

This hybrid narrative depicts the bodies of native elders to evoke the ghosts of rubber colonialism at the end of XIX century, the memory of ancient indigenous cultures still alive, but in danger of disappearing as a consequence of global capitalism.

SINOPSIS:

Guiados por cantos de ayahuasca, RIO VERDE. EL TIEMPO DE LOS YAKURUNAS es un viaje poético a las profundidades de la selva. La película explora la percepción del tiempo en tres comunidades unidas por las aguas del río Amazonas, sumergiendo al espectador en un paisaje habitado por shamanes y sociedades arquetípicas.

Esta narrativa híbrida retrata los cuerpos de ancianos indígenas para invocar a los fantasmas de la explotación del caucho a finales del siglo XIX, convocar la memoria de antiguas culturas indígenas aún vivas, pero en peligro de desaparecer como consecuencia del capitalismo global.
