THIS SOIL DOESN’T SPEAK A FOREIGN LANGUAGE
DIRECTOR  RAFAEL SYLOS 
LIVE ACTION • 15 MINUTES • BRAZIL  

Mathias lives isolated in the woods. One day, an Oca (typical brazilian indigenous housing) appears in the surroundings of his house. It belongs to the Kaingang Beni, that is using the land to perform traditional and religious rituals. The mere presence of this new neighbor drives Mathias to bring his most obscure instincts to the surface.
