THE DEAD AND THE OTHERS 6.png

There are no spirits or snakes tonight and the forest around the village is quiet. Fifteen-year-old Ihjãc has nightmares since he lost his father. He is an indigenous Krahô from the north of Brazil. Ihjãc walks into darkness, his sweaty body moves with fright. A distant chant comes through the palm trees. His father’s voice calls him to the waterfall: it´s time to organize the funerary feast so the spirit can depart to the dead´s village. The mourning must cease. Denying his duty and in order to escape a crucial process of becoming a shaman, Ihjãc runs away to the city. Far from his people and culture, he faces the reality of being an indigenous in contemporary Brazil.

At Uz, an isolated hamlet in the northern mountains of Portugal, four generations live together in a group of around fifty people. When life is rough, solidarity is of the highest order. Everything else is left in God’s hands. They could have emigrated, like so many others, but chose to stay and keep their ancestral way of life, away from the racket of modernity.

May 2016. A group of 11 women set off from a village in the extreme north of Portugal on pilgrimage to Fátima. They walk 400km on foot over 10 days, crossing half of Portugal in a great effort to fulfil their promises. The extreme fatigue, suffering and physical limitations of each one of them lead to moments of rupture. Then they reveal their deeper identities and motivations. When arriving in Fatima, in the midst of enormous exhaustion, each one will have to find her own way to redemption.
