Teste cartaz Toré provisório.png

The Kariri-Xocó, an indigenous people from Brazil, who live on the borders of the São Francisco River, have in their songs and traditional rituals a place of strength to resist a colonial history of violence and invisibility.

Stripped of their language and territory, expropriated throughout Brazilian history, they occupied a portion of their ancestral lands in 2015, in a movement called the Retomada (reclaimed).

This film followed one day of immersion with the Kariri-Xocó in the reclaimed lands. They sing to keep resisting and resist to keep singing.
