The fight of the dog and the jaguar
From 1950 to 1980 millions of people from the north-eastern region of Brazil migrated to the south-eastern states looking for better life conditions.
They’re sons and daughters of the drought, hunger, and misery. As baggage, they brought children, food, stories and musical styles.
‘A briga do cachorro com a onça’ [the fight of the dog and the jaguar] is a Brazilian folk song, played in different versions by Fife bands throughout the country.
This is a cinematic-version of such music, a free adaptation of the played history. At the same time, it portraits a poetic and contemporary perspective on such migratory flow.
