Chile festival honors tribes

Mapuche event to promote understanding of indigenous peoples

SANTIAGO — Chile will launch in October its first Mapuche Film Festival, featuring documentaries and shorts made by or about indigenous tribes in the country.

The politically active Mapuches have recently made headlines, demonstrating over land and water rights in Patagonia.

Fest, produced by France’s Cicai, will include submissions from the Mapuches, as well as the Aymara, O Papa-Nui and other indigenous tribes.

Fest director Sergio Bravo Ramos bowed a documentary about Chile’s indigenous Tirua community at last year’s Unesco in Paris.

Ramos said the fest’s goal is to develop an intercultural dialogue and to promote understanding of Chile’s indigenous peoples.
