1. Mekaron : "I have in my hand a visual manifest, bloodstained with 500 years of history."
A fast sequence of images (filmed in Super 8, VHS, Super VHS,Hi 8) situated between fiction and reality, for what used to be beautiful, real for what suggests tragedy.
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 throughout the window of a moving train. The two stations are called Brazil and Canada. 5:27 Tiuré Potiguara
