Ignacio’s Legacy by Titus Fossgard-Moser. 52 min / 2016

Between 1960 and 1992, the acclaimed documentary filmmaker Brian Moser made four films concerning indigenous peoples of northwest Amazonia: “Piraparana” (1960), “War of the Gods” (1971), “A Small Family Business” (1983), and “Before Columbus” (1992). The film “Ignacio’s Legacy” documents a journey in early 2016 by Brian, his son Titus and anthropologists Stephen and Christine Hugh-Jones to show and return these films and other audio-visual material to the Barasana and Makuna peoples. Alongside capturing the journey and the peoples’ reactions to the films, it draws upon the earlier films to explore various forms of cultural change over nearly sixty years.

For further information on the films please contact: RAI Film Officer, Caterina Sartori, film@therai.org.uk

All are welcome, booking not required.
