Onoruame, a paralell reality

Documentary based on the Raramuri people, one of the most secluded tribes in the American continent. They habit the vast north mountains of the state of Chihuahua, Mexico. This film explores the consequences of a clash of beliefs and traditions within the tribe, and the relationship among oppressors and oppressed, the the Spanish colonialists and the Raramuri people that were displaced them from their land. Through religious beliefs, the subject matter is understood as the ‘other’ a someone that is naturally displaced to a time and space that belongs to the past, but at the same time, it is displaced to where it can become intrinsically connected. This is the first time that the ‘jicuri’ ritual is performed in front of cameras. A beautiful documentary that shows the life of one of the most mysterious tribes in the world, and the resilience that they have gained through out years of exploitation.
