October 28. 7pm. JAGUAR VOICE OF A TERRITORY
Length: 72 minutes.
Production: Canoa Films.
Coproduction: Ruge Films.
DIRECTED BY: SIMÓN GONZÁLEZ VÉLEZ*
In the transnational Amazonian forest, the Jaguar is the king. The documentary tells the story of love, affection, respect, humility, temperance, and courage; it also, talks about balance with oneself and the other (science and indigenous ways of life). It is the voice of a territory and a tradition where the jaguar dwells and seeks to be heard.
It is a tour through the mountains, jungles, and plains where the jaguar has directly engaged with humans, creating a millenary journey of chants, myths, and cultural traditions which narrate the history of the man-jaguar relationship and speak to the importance of preserving this species which finds itself severely threatened. Jaguar voice of a territory took a decade to complete.
