Pasión Amerindia (Amerindian Passion)

Pasión Amerindia (Amerindian Passion)

“Amerindian Passion” is a record of five years of experimental archeology in Venezuela. In the first ever expedition of its type, the team researches the pre-Hispanic navigational routes of the Amerindians of the region, building replicas of their indigenous curiaras in which to navigate them. The film is a summary of the expeditions from their beginning, revealing the pre-Hispanic period to be one of the richest, most beautiful and unjustly forgotten stages of our history.
