Curupira, bicho do mato

Curupira, Creature of the Woods | Curupira, der im Walde haust
Inhabitants of Tauary, deep in the heart of the Amazon, invite us to listen to the sounds of the jungle, the birds, and animals. However, some weird sounds appear: a creature prowling around the trees. Some have heard her, very few have ever seen her, and those who did find her never came back. She charms, she enchants – she leads people to get lost: each of them tells a story in their own way and tries to decipher her sounds.
Curupira, bicho do mato takes us in search of this being: a reflection about myths and their place in the contemporary world. It’s a sound thriller in the midst of the jungle.
