The Hills of Disorder (Serras da desordem) (Brazil, 2006)

The Hills of Disorder (2006)
August 10, 2014 - 7:00 pm

“An incredible true story about Brazil’s vanishing native Indians is the basis for Andrea Tonacci’s long, unhurried, often fascinating tale, half-way between fiction and lyrical documentary.” – Variety

Directed by Andréa Tonacci.

The Hills of Disorder is an adventurous, ambitious dream of a film by Andrea Tonacci, a veteran Cinema Marginal director.  Through a mix of documentary and recreation, Tonacci tells the fascinating tale of Carapiru, an Indian who survived the massacre of his tribe to find himself, essentially, an internal refugee for the next decade.  For this remarkable documentary, Carapiru himself recreates scenes from his life, adding to the poignancy and alienation of his story.

Producer: Andréa Tonacci.  Screenwriter: Andréa Tonacci, Sidney Possuelo, Wellington Soares.  Cast: Carapiru.

Digital Video, color, in Portuguese with English subtitles, 135 mins.
