The Voice of the Mapuche / La Voz Mapuche.

The Mapuche people now live on less than 2% of their orginal land as the legal, political and military structures of Chile and Argentina persist in favouring the interests of big business. However, the Mapuche remain focused on maintaining their identity as a people, in spite of systematic repression from the Chilean regime. This impressive documentary takes the viewer across the rivers, lakes, forests and mountains of Mapuche land. It registers the words and wisdom of Mapuche women, men, children and elders and through music, paintings, poetry and rituals presents the Mapuche vision of the world.
