Long ago, before rivers existed in the Amazon, the god Kukama stood in his canoe, holding up his bow and arrows. His arrows flew one by one, creating vast winding rivers, which the Kukama people have tirelessly navigated to the present day. In a world where nature is prized, this animation takes viewers into the magical and beautiful world of the Amazon region, reminding us of our sacred connection to water.

This is the debut animation film from artist Miguel Araoz, born in 1977 in Cusco, Peru. Currently, he is co-directing his first feature film with Stephanie Boyd, called Karuara, la gente del río, which deals with the enchanted world of the spirits that live under the rivers of the Amazon, and the struggle of the Kukama people to save them.
