Top 25 Shorts, #23: Fire

Kurt Shaw

When we first arrived in the Baniwa community of Itacoatiara-Mirim, near São Gabriel da Cachoeira in the Amazon, we showed the children a movie that we had made with the Kuna indians of Panamá.  That movie, The Iskar, illustrates the myth of how humans stole fire from the Jaguar who wanted to keep it for himself.  Seeing this movie, two Baniwa teenagers wanted to tell the same story as it comes form their own culture.  This movie, which uses Baniwa petroglyphs as the basis for the art, tells that story.
