Let Our Songs Live

Synopsis
This film was made at the invitation of the Sirionó Indians living in Ibiato, a small village with 500 inhabitants in the rainforest of northern Bolivia. The Sirionó call themselves ‘Mbía’ (people). They used to be nomadic but today live in the village, which was founded by a North American missionary. The film is a study of the Sirionó way of life and shows their concern for the future.
