Filmed in virtual reality, this short length documentary portrays the Waurá people, an indigenous ethnic group made up of 560 individuals who live in the Xingu Indigenous Reserve, in the Brazilian state of Mato Grosso. The film shows daily life in the village of Piyulaga and how the indians preserve their traditional culture – while also incorporating habits and technology from white man. The story raises awareness about the out-of-control fires resulting from deforestation around the reserve. Besides their impact in climate change, these fires threaten the forest and life as a whole in the Xingu Reserve.
