Masterclass with Brazilian indigenous filmmaker Takumã Kuikuro in Porto

March 9, at the School of Arts of the Catholic University in Porto

The Brazilian filmmaker Takumã Kuikuro, internationally recognized for focusing on and exploring the indigenous experience in his films, will be at the Escola das Artes of the Catholic University in Porto, on the 9th of March, at 6:30 pm.

The Masterclass, with free admission, will address the experience in film production and culture at (CKC).

Takumã Kuikuro is a filmmaker member of the Kuikuro indigenous village, and currently resides in the Ipatse village, in the Xingu Indigenous Park, in Brazil. He made the documentary “As Hiper Mulheres” (2011), together with Leonardo Sette and Carlos Fausto and has already had films distinguished at festivals such as Gramado and Brasília, and at Presence Autochtone de Terres in Vues, in Montréal. In 2017, he was awarded the Queen Mary University London Honorary Fellowship, and in 2019 he was the first indigenous judge for the Festival de Cinema Brasileiro de Brasília.

The masterclass organized by the Escola das Artes of Universidade Católica Portuguesa in Porto aims to present not only the director’s work but also to address the experience in film production and culture in the Xingu. Nuno Crespo, director of the School of Arts, points out that “these open classes are important opportunities to access different realities and understand the challenges faced by certain human communities.”

This masterclass is part of the 2023 International Cycle of Conferences, Exhibitions, and Performances of the School of Arts, which has the title “Pisar Suavemente a Terra” and is inspired by the thought of philosopher and activist Ailton Krenak. It is not only a tribute to the thinker, but a subtle movement to admit the urgency of these and other teachings, human and non-human, as possibilities to understand and transform our relationship with the Earth.

The masterclass with Takumã Kuikuro will take place on March 9, at 6.30 pm, in the Ilídio Pinho Auditorium of the Catholic University in Porto. Admission is free and open to the entire community.
