The Hyperwomen

Brazil, 2011


Deep in the jungle of Mato Grosso, in the upper course of the Xingu, this sparkling documentary follows preparations for a Jamurikumalu ritual: a festival of singing and dancing that is only performed by women. The problem is that the only woman who knows all the songs is seriously ill.
