Top 25 films, # 13: The heron

Kurt Shaw

In 2011, we worked with leaders of the Kuna indians in Panamá -- both in Panama City and on the islands of Kuna Yala -- to create a dialogue between urban and island indian youth.  On the island of Ailigandi, the kids wanted to interpret the myth of the heron.  It's a fabulous story about mimetic desire and jealousy, and the kids did a great job of telling the story.  And the wedding scene follows exactly in the way that Kuna weddings happen, including the ritual water fight afterward!
