People’s Palace Projects is proud to host Brazilian filmmaker Takumã Kuikuro for an artistic residency supported by Brazil’s Ministry of Culture and FUNARTE in partnership with British Council TRANSFORM as part of the Culture Brasil Connection programme during March and April 2015.

Takumã is a member of the Kuikuro people, and grew up in the Ipatse village within the Alto Xingú Indigenous Reserve in Mato Grosso state, central Brazil.  Trained through Brazil’s well known NGO programme “Video in the Villages”/Video nas Aldéias, he has received international attention and acclaim for his films including The Day The Moon Menstruated, The Hyperwomen and Kariokas.

PPP’s proposal for his residency is to observe and film “London as a Village”, and we look forward to screening the results as part of our London seminar on 10th June 2015 for The Art of Cultural Exchange.

Takumã will also be speaking at various events focusing on Brazilian and indigenous culture during April, including at the Brazilian Embassy and King’s Brazil Institute.
