Event Details

Lending to genres of documentary, experimental, and visual poetry, Compañía stretches notions of Indigenous Cinema. A journey begins. The cadence sets the tone for reflective introspection. The daily rhythms of a small mountain community fade in and out of time. With a call to return, we witness community members from the city to honour the dead. Along the path, dreams and memories transform themselves into non-linear way-finding, giving way to contemplative quiet and the cyclical nature of life. From the individual to the community, the land to urban spaces, traditional to ancestral, Compañía is a call to witness the fullness of what has been carried and what has survived. Through the perspective of the community, Miguel Hilari deepens the understanding of perspectives on home and migration.
