For an indigenous group, protecting the future requires rediscovering the past

The Harakmbut people of the Peruvian Amazon have seen their fragile ecosystem destroyed, with mining operations turning rainforest areas into deserts. The Reunion follows a group of Harakmbut as they enter the forest to locate an enormous face carved from stone by their ancestors. Amid the destruction of their land and the loss of many of their cultural traditions, they see the sacred monument as a symbol of their identity in need of protection and care, and the voyage as a way of reconnecting with their ancestors and heritage – ‘a family reunion’.
