Synopsis
Sometime in the 1950s legendary Hollywood character Samuel Fuller, who directed Naked Kiss, Shock Corridor journeyed deep into the heart of Brazil to research a film for notorious studio boss Darryl F Zanuck. The film never came to fruition, but some 40 years later, Fuller, accompanied by latter day American auteur Jim Jarmusch retraced his steps to meet again with the indigenous tribes people. The tale of that return journey is told in the ambitious, beautiful and truly fascinating film Tigrero.
