Wounaan: A People of the Rainforest documents the rhythms and activities of daily life of the Wounaan, an indigenous tribe inhabiting the rainforest of the west coast of Colombia during the mid-sixties. The activities of a constructed day, through close-ups and candid moments, afford the viewer a unique glimpse into the cooperative and egalitarian nature of a subsistence culture based on agriculture and hunting and fishing. Since Wounaan, social life has recently been severely disrupted by capitalist violence, the film captures a critical historical moment.
