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.
