Camopi One

‘Camopi One’ is an island documentary at the crossroads of borders. In Camopi, a village opposite Brazil in French Guiana which is only accessible by the Oyapock River, the low, thick and piercing sounds of tule clarinets – the main musical instruments of the Waypi Amerindians and the foundation of their culture – resonate. Music and image are weaved in a multi-voiced narrative, where generations and civilizations confront each other.
