"I have in my hand a visual manifest, bloodstained with 500 years of history." A fast sequence of images situated between fiction and reality. Only painful can be this lecture, with an ending which is certainly sad; colonization. It is an invitation for the spectator to visualize the impact of indigenous reality through the window of a moving train. The two stations are called Brazil and Canada.

Collage vidéographique dynamique montrant les effets dévastateurs de la colonisation et le phénomène du génocide qui l'accompagne. En juxtaposant des images de la vie quotidienne d'autochtones du Brésil et du Canada, l'auteur établit des parallèles entre les tristes sorts des peuples autochtones du monde entier. Voici un manifeste entaché du sang versé au cours de cinq cents ans d'histoire.
