MY BLOOD IS RED
UK / Brazil
A musical love story, a tragedy and a celebration of the indigenous lens. In the middle of an environmental and humanitarian catastrophe a boy sings in the forest. The rapper in the rainforest is Werá Jeguaka Mirim - a teenage indigenous poet who writes protest songs fuelled by the anger and sadness that he feels about the destruction of his people. He achieved some notoriety when he was thirteen and unfurled a “Demarcacaõ Ja!” banner at the climax of the opening ceremony of the World Cup. The transmission was blacked out by the government. Because of this act he’s known to many as Wera Fifa, but although they remember the protest, they have no idea who this kid was, where he came from or what ever became of him.
