Naku Ikinyu

(Living Forest)

2020 | 21’ | USA, Ecuador
Tatiana Lopez

To know how to dream is to understand a language of symbols where representations are based on the interpretative process of self, body, and spirit through corporeal and oneiric experiences. For Sapara people from the Ecuadorian Amazon, their relationship with the other than human beings is associated with the wellbeing of the land by their daily engagement with the spirits of the forest through dreams. Naku Ikinyu is an experimental and participatory ethnographic film essay that engages with Indigenous Sapara women’s local pursuits of ecological wellbeing and their spiritual foundation that concedes human and non-human beings are animated. By combining voiceover, sensory and participatory methods, the researcher attempts to introduce personal and collective sensorial experiences through a collaborative approach that reflects on transcorporeality from a place of resistance while simultaneously presenting her collaborators' embodied practices.
