The collaborative indigenous cinema of Video nas Aldeias and the Intangible Cultural Heritage
The project Video nas Aldeias (VNA) was created in Brazil in 1986 with the objective of supporting the struggle of indigenous peoples to strengthen their cultures and identities through the use of audiovisual resources. Since 1997, VNA has become a school of indigenous filmmakers, although the spirit of collaboration has been maintained, especially during the review of the footage, translation and editing phases. This paper analyses some case studies in order to reflect on the relations between collaborative cinema and heritage in the context of indigenous peoples in Brazil and advocates that this is not a technique or methodology but rather a political, ethical and aesthetic attitude that has to be available for the potential of the becoming and the radically new.
