Karaiba

USA, 1993 (MIFF 1994, Animation Focus)

Director: Lea Zagury

Lea Zagury is a Brazilian filmmaker who has been living and working in the United States for some fifteen years.

In a series of collages and stop-motion, she explores the relationship between Brazil's indigenous people and Western interests. Zagury uses myth to contrast the two lifestyles and their shared, but often conflicting enthusiasm for the environment.
