The Song of the Butterfies

Documentary Feature
Peru · 2020 · 65´ · Spanish, Munuka


Rember is an indigenous from the Uitoto Nation who lives in Lima. From his clan, the White Heron, only two families remain in Peru. He is an artist and paints inspired by the stories his grandmother Martha told him before she died. However, he has never dived into the darkest part of his nation’s history: the rubber boom massacre. Martha is a survivor of the horror and she speaks to Rember in dreams, guiding him in a spiritual journey back to the jungle.
