Em busca da terra sem males

In Search of the Land Without Evil | Auf der Suche nach dem Land ohne Böses
In the ‘land without evil’ humans will find peace, according to the Guaraní. Not far from Rio de Janeiro, they have built a village where they can live according to their customs and their children can grow up equally influenced by ancient traditions and the modern world. The uncommented observation of their everyday lives full of games, laughter and music enables the audience to pose questions – and to search for their own right answers.
