Abstract:

The Art of Being Wichi is a 48-minute documentary on the Wichi Indians and their fight for the survival of their culture, and for their land. In the film we meet Chief Pascal Perez and his tribe in the northern province of Salta, Argentina. He knows that if their traditional way of life is going to have any chance of surviving, they need to regain control of their land. We follow Pascal and the Wichi leader Francisco Perez in their struggle against authorities, drug smugglers, the oil industry, corrupt politicians and cattle owners. The result is a film that shows not only the plight of an indigenous people, but also the beauty of their way of life.
