When his father passes away, Ihjãc is reluctant to end his period of mourning. A member of the indigenous Krahô people in north Brazil, Ihjãc is not unlike any modern Western teenager, wary of the burgeoning responsibilities of adulthood and restless to experience something new beyond his remote habitat. That’s as conventional as things get in a beguiling and meditative film where the boundaries between fiction and documentary become as blurred as the veil between the spirit world and this, thanks to its amateur cast and use of steady observational takes captured on luxurious 16mm film.
