Summary:
Antonio Lorenzano was an acclaimed musician, shamanic healer and canoe-builder, and the leader of a Warao community in the Orinoco Delta, Venezuela. This film follows anthropologist Dieter Heinen, who knew Lorenzano well, as he returns to the community six months after his death. The testimonies of his children, grandchildren and others who knew him demonstrate the continuing strength of the cultural legacy that Lorenzano left to them. But this legacy turns out to be a hybrid of the old and the new and, as such, a metaphor for the Warao as whole. For despite major cultural changes, the Warao retain a strong sense of their identity and with a population of 30,000, remain one of the largest indigenous groups in Lowland South America.
