Release Year
Within the largest forest of the world, in the village of Watorik, lives a Yanomami community at the border between Brazil and Venezuela. We spend time with Ehuana Yaira and her family. In this encounter, the power of every little gesture reminds us that we are at the top and the heart of the forest and its inhabitants.


Louise Botkay studied at the National Film School of France (FEMIS). She has shot films in Haiti, Congo, Niger, Chad, Brazil and Europe, using her cell phone, video, super-8, 16 or 35 mm film that she developed herself. Her works were shown at festivals such as Oberhausen, Fid de Marseille, VidéoBrasil, and more. Her work A film for Ehuana won a prize from the State of North Rhine-Westaphalia, Germany.
