In 1930, Belgian filmmaker-ethnographer Robert de Wavrin directed this documentary about some indigenous tribes in South America. Though the head-shrinking ritual of the Shuar might be most spectacular, de Wavrin's main focus was to register the daily life of the Indians that radically differed from his. (C.V.)

This film is part of the double bill 'Robert de Wavrin, a Belgian ethno filmmaker' and will be screened together with the documentary 'Le Marquis de Wavrin, du manoir à la jungle'.
