Healer Training (Darĩtidzé)

Vincent Carelli

2003, 35:00 minutes, colour, Xavante with English Subtitles


Direction and Photography: Divino Tserewahú

Since the screening of his film "Wai'a Rini, The Power of the Dream" in other Xavante villages, the people of Aldeia Nova from the São Marcos reservation asked Divino to make a film on the same ritual, the Wai'á ceremony. In this ceremony the young men are initiated into the spiritual world to develop their curative power. A new experience for him who has to shoot in a different village but also a way to try new tracks and to develop his editing skills.
