Eureka

Synopsis
The year is 1970. The day dawns peacefully as the tribal chief rises and goes to greet his people. The men and women gather in a circle, murmuring among themselves. Iracema, a beautiful young woman, tells the others about the dream she had the night before.

Director’s note
Eureka is a bird that graces the skies over the Americas. EUREKA travels through time and space to the heart of the Amazon jungle, over the border between Peru and Brazil. She also flies in and out of different time periods. And she likes the indigenous peoples. By listening to her we might grasp, if we are lucky, how difficult it is for us to become human beings.
