Guarani-Kaiowá is no longer, since July 30, 2012, only a name of another Brazilian Indian tribe. The designation was multiplied in the social networks in Brazil and in the world as an act of solidarity resulted from the dissemination (by the mainstream media) of the situation of the Indian group in their struggle for land in the state of Mato Grosso do Sul.
In São Paulo and other cities, marchers showed their anger in protests. With the agitation of the cause, the situation of the Guarani-Kaiowá entered in the discussions in different circles. In this same period, the photographer and journalist Rodrigo Paiva was among the Guarani-Kaiowá, recording their way of life, their difficulties and struggles. In dozens of pictures and testimonials, he captured the reality in areas where Indians are settled and in threatened villages, so mentioned by the major media. He's also given voice to many other actors in this comprehensive scenario - authorities, farmers, experts. Besides deepening an issue that caused passion and mobilized the country, the documentary "Guarani-Kaiowá" presents these records revealing the delicate plot that involves the issue of this Indian group and their territory, in the physical space where it manifests itself. It also brings the subtleties and reverberations in addition to the phrases of protest and the layers that make this a matter of intricate and disturbing contours.
