A cinematic game with the oldest stories of the world in Brazil. The visible and the invisible exist side by side and can be recorded. Scratched drawings in caves, vanished animals, Guaraní creation myths, children’s games and thinking rocks. Add as visible evidence: the contemporary and ancient film and sound recording technologies that were used.

The ritual of “tango” is handed down from the ancestors to help end starvation and draught. The villagers collect sacrificial gifts. Their reward is wealth, but in all this abundance they forget the duties of the sacrificial cult. Pedro Giongo and Francisco Gusso mesh parts of Franz Kafka’s “A Hunger Artist” with graphic reminiscences of Brazilian folklore and the crowded visual world of the Flemish renaissance in a remarkable parable.
