Video, color, 11 min 2 sec

A pioneer in indigenous cinema in Brazil, Divino Tserewahú (1974) lives in the Sangradouro community of the Xavante people. He has collaborated with Vídeo nas Aldeias since the 1990s and participated in the first ever workshop in the Xingu. In films such as Wapté Mnhõnõ – Initiation of a Young Xavante (1999) and Tsõ'rehipãri – Sangradouro (2009), he documents the cultural practices of his people and the memories of contact with non-indigenous peoples.
