Paz Encina, Paraguay, 2022, 83′
Eami is a little girl, a member of the Ayoreo-Totobiegosode people who do not make a distinction between things that have surrounded them for centuries: the trees, animals, and plants for them are one. In fact, in the Ayoreo language, Eami means both “forest” and “world”. Their forest-world is in the Paraguayan Chaco, the territory with the highest deforestation rate in the world. When machines swallow Eami’s home, she falls into a trance and embodies Asojá, the bird-god-woman, walking slowly and in a daze through her beloved forest as she prepares to leave it forever. In collaboration with International festival of contemporary arts — City of Women.
