A Invenção Do Outro / La invención del Otro

An Amazon expedition by the National Foundation of Indigenous Peoples (FUNAI), and led by Bruno Pereira, seeks to establish contact with the isolated Korubo tribe and reunite them with other family members.

THE FILMMAKERS

Bruno Jorge studied Social Communication in São Paulo, Brazil, Documentary Film in Paris, France, and a Masters in Performing Arts in Liège, Belgium. Since 2003 he has made very independently over 20 films of different genres, including shorts and feature length films, influenced by visual arts, experimental cinema and ethnography. In 2013 the French Cinematheque honored Bruno with a retrospective of his short film work. His films have been selected for important festivals such as Cannes, Rotterdam, Clermont-Ferrand and Visions du Réel. The last film "Piripkura" (cinematography and co-direction) premiered at IDFA where it received the Human Rights Prize, and also the best film by official juries at the Rio de Janeiro International Film Festival, Docville International Documentary Film Festival, and Cartagena International Film Festival.
