Renée Nader Messora (Brazil graduated in cinematography from a film university in Buenos Aires. She worked as an assistant director in Brazil, Argentina and Portugal for fifteen years. In 2009, she met the Krahô native tribe for the very first time and has been working with this community ever since. Together, they have created a collective of amateur filmmakers who use cinema and film language to express individual, cultural, and tribal identity. This feature docu-drama is based on her long experience with the Krahô people and constitutes her directing debut The Dead and the Others. The film won in the Un Certain Regard section in Cannes and she will introduce it at Febiofest on 26th March. (New Europe)
