The(ir) Blurb...

In the heart of the Amazonian jungle, the village of Palma Real on the banks of the river 'Mother of God' still resists the modern world. Nomads of origin and evangelized by force, their pagan customs persist despite everything and the inhabitants are marked with the physique of the native tribes. Carlito, a silent young man, decides to leave this place, his native village, in a strange, discreet and informal escape. Without saying goodbye to his family, if not his grandmother just as silent as him, he commits the flight of a canoe to escape on the river. A little further on, on the muddy bed of the immense river, an encounter reveals the secret that Carlito has hidden from his community. A film whose images are revealed as a poem, shot and interpreted in the native language of the village, by the inhabitants. Film directed under the supervision of Werner Herzog.
