Through elaborate storytelling in which the Yanomami themselves re-enact their creation story of two brothers and a water goddess, this hybrid documentary gives space to Brazil’s largest native community to steer the narrative and bring us closer to their way of understanding the world. As their unchanged, elemental way of life competes with the lure of the developed white world across the river, Kopenawa and his peers fight against the poisoning of the rivers where they bathe and fish, whilst striving to keep their thousand-year-old culture intact.

“Only in our forest can you sleep in peace” Davi Kopenawa

“visually and sonically rich without falling back on empty exoticist spectacle” Variety

Trwy adrodd straeon cywrain lle mae'r Yanomami eu hunain yn ailberfformio eu stori creu am ddau frawd a duwies ddŵr, mae'r rhaglen ddogfen hybrid hon yn rhoi lle i gymuned frodorol fwyaf Brasil lywio'r naratif a dod â ni'n nes at eu ffordd o ddeall y byd. Wrth i’w ffordd o fyw ddigyfnewid, elfennol gystadlu ag atyniad y byd gwyn datblygedig ar ochr arall yr afon, mae Kopenawa a’i gyfoedion yn ymladd yn erbyn gwenwyno’r afonydd lle maen nhw’n ymdrochi ac yn pysgota, wrth ymdrechu i gadw eu diwylliant mil o flynyddoedd oed yn gyfan.
