Hills of Disorder
NAME OF FILM: HILLS OF DISORDER
DIRECTOR(S): Andrea Tonacci
GENRE: Documentary Film
SYNOPSIS: Remaining true to his radical roots, Andrea Tonacci retells the true story of Carapiru, an indigenous man who survived the massacre of his tribe in 1978, roaming over 350 miles through the mountains of Central Brazil and toward Western civilization. Years later, a government agency attempts to resettle him to his native village—yet another uprooting. Commenting on Brazil’s alternately fetishistic and ugly treatment of native peoples as well as the director’s own gaze, Tonacci’s penultimate film constantly asks difficult questions, and employs a challenging aesthetic approach that blends re-enactments and archival news reports.
