Novo futuro

The Huni Kuin Cultural Renaissance

Filmed in the Huni Kuin community of Novo Futuro in Acre, Brazil, this mini documentary shares the tribe's decision to open their village to outsiders and seek alliances with people from the Global North.

Directed by Brazilian filmmakers Lara Jacoski and Patrick Belem from Bem-Te-Vi Produções, you will witness the Huni Kuin people’s long process of recovering their roots, remembering their culture, and emergence into better times, the era of indigenous rights.

Featuring Ninawa Pai da Mata

Ninawa Pai Da Mata is the Chief of the Novo Futuro Village, of the Huni Kuin people in Acre, Brazil and comes from an unbroken lineage of powerful spiritual leaders (pajés). He is a gifted musician and captivates people wherever he goes with his charisma and power and sharing his message of nature, love and humility. He has appeared at Glastonbury Festival, Medicine Festival, in the UK, as well as one of the main spiritual leaders of the annual Aniwa gathering in the the USA.
