Untɨ, the origins

by Christophe Yanouwana Pierre

GUYANA (France) - 2018 - 56 MINUTES

synopsis

This film is an initiatory journey from the mouth of the Maroni to the hills of Tumuc Humac, on the Brazilian border. Going up the river to meet the Amerindians of Guyana and in search of my identity, I will thus address the essential questions of the current social and economic situation. The Maroni, the common thread of this story, will be the vector of my anger, my sadness, my questions and my hope.
