BIRDWATCHERS – LA TERRA DEGLI UOMINI ROSSI

In order to survive in their old tradition, the Guarani-Kaiowà, an endangered Brazilian tribe, decide to leave their assigned reservation to return to the place of their forefathers. But meanwhile this land has become property of a great land owner who will stop at nothing to displace the Guarani-Kaiowà again. BIRDWATCHERS is a film full of extremes. On the basis of a fictional story the movie points on the problems of Brazilian natives. Tradition and civilisation clash in an inconsistent manner. It is a fight for justice, acceptance and survival.
