Synopsis: For more than ten years, the Tupinambá have been waiting for the completion of the demarcation process of their land. In this context, they have been carrying out collective actions known as land repossessions, recovering numerous areas within their territory that were in the possession of non-Indians. For this reason, they have been targets of criminalization and violent attacks, both by the Brazilian State, and by individuals and groups that are against the guarantee of their rights. To tell this story, we gathered testimonies and sequences recorded in May 2014 in the Serra do Padeiro village, in the Tupinambá Indigenous Land of Olivença, southern Bahia (Brazil), as well as archival images. In the film, the history of expropriation and resistance of the Tupinambá is narrated from the perspective of the natives, for whom the land belongs to the enchanted, the most important entities of its cosmology.
