Iwianch, the Devil Deer

Iwianch, el diablo venado
Latin American Documentary Films Official Competition

An enigmatic presence haunts the depths of the Amazon rainforest, where an indigenous Achuar teenager has disappeared. During the search for the young man, his family resorts to a shaman who, in a deep trance, reveals that the young man has been taken by the devil, but he has managed to show him the way back home. As they await his return, secrets of the dream-like rainforest and Amazonian visions of life after death combine, vanishing the documentarist’s notions of reality.
