Imbé Gikegü, The Smell of Pequi Fruit
2006, 36:00 minutes, colour, Kuikuro with English Subtitles
Direction: Takumã and Maricá Kuikuro
It's the time of celebration and merriment in the Alto Xingu. The dry season is coming to an end. The smell of the damp earth is mixed with the sweet perfume of pequi. But it has not always been like that: If it had not been for a death, the pequi would possibly not exist. Linking the past to the present, Kuikuro filmmakers tell a tale of dangers and pleasures, of sex and betrayal, where men and women, humming birds and alligators build a shared world.
