Terrifying legends from the Amazon tell of Indian headshrinkers who would shrink an enemy’s head to render the vengeful soul powerless. Now, NGC has exclusive access to 45-year-old archive footage captured by explorer Edmundo Bielawski, purportedly the only known footage that shows the process of an actual - recently deceased - human head being shrunk. Author and explorer Piers Gibbon heads deep into the Amazon jungle in an attempt to trace Bielawski's 1960s journey, rediscover the exact location where this scene was filmed and reconnect with the tribe today, in Search for the Amazon Headshrinkers.

Nicolas is a young adventurer filmmaker. He arrives in an Indian village in the heart of the Rio Xingu valley with the aim of shooting a documentary there about an ancestral tribal ceremony, Kuarup.
He immediately falls in love with Luacema, the daughter of Chief Ayupu. Watched over by Roberto, the director of the Toa Toari reserve, Nicolas and Ruben, his guide as ridiculous as he is incompetent, settle in the village. In order to get closer to the woman he secretly loves, Nicolas slowly integrates into the villagers’ daily life. After being initiated into local customs, he is made aware of the threat weighing on his new friends and the woman he loves: deforestation.
Ayupu then drags him into their struggle against loggers, responsible for the devastation of the forests that date back to the Palaeozoic era. After several intimidation tactics against Olympio Ferra and his men, Ayupu realizes that Nicolas’s camera is a formidable weapon that could be put to use for their cause.
They leave together for Rio de Janeiro where they hope to be able to impress upon younger generations the danger hanging over their environment and their future.
Nicolas finds the heroic strength to transform his unrequited love for Luacema into a desire to protect her people. This Amazonian adventure gives a meaning to his life and propels him into a fight against ignorance and reckless destruction around the world.

FR. Dans une île de la côte atlantique, des garçons, âgés de sept à quatorze ans, vivent clandestinement une existence autonome. Issus de familles que tout oppose, du fils de maraîcher au fils de notable, leur bande se livre à des chapardages, puis à des cambriolages en règle, avec toutes les conséquences qui s’ensuivent.
Avec Duvert, pour la première fois, peut-être, dans la littérature, on découvre le monde uniquement du point de vue de l’enfant. Les adultes, dans leur comportement le plus intime, restent des parents. Ce récit, d’une écriture aussi claire que maîtrisée, est la fois plein d’humour et de violence.
EN. Several boys aged seven to fourteen, have formed their own secret support group as a result of parental neglect and abuse. The group is however more keen on revenge against the adults on their island. They break into houses and steal items, not for money, more for the thrill. They vandalize homes and torment the occupants. One man decides to seize the opportunity to do away with his wife and blame.

Martin and Hazel Quarrier are small-town fundamentalist missionaries sent to the jungles of South America to convert the Indians. Their remote mission was previously run by the Catholics, before the natives murdered them all. They are sent by the pompous Leslie Huben, who runs the missionary effort in the area but who seems more concerned about competing with his Catholic 'rivals' than in the Indians themselves. Hazel is terrified of the Indians while Martin is fascinated. Soon American pilot Lewis Moon joins the Indian tribe but is attracted by Leslie's young wife, Andy. Can the interaction of these characters and cultures, and the advancing bulldozers of civilization, avoid disaster?Director: Hector Babenco.Cast: Tom Berenger, John Lithgow, Daryl Hannah, Aidan Quinn, Tom Waits, Niilo Kivirinta, S.

Qiang is a four-year-old little rebel, possessed of a pair of luminous eyes and a precociously indomitable will. His father deposits him at a well-appointed residential kindergarten in post-1949 Beijing, since his parents are often away. Life at the kindergarten appears rich and colourful, made up of a variety of cheerfully sunny rituals and games meant to train these children to be good members of society. But it's not so easy for Qiang to adapt to this kind of carefully organized, minutely scrutinized collective life. A fierce individualist in miniature, he tries but fails to conform to the model his teachers enforce. Yet he still craves the reward that the other students win: the little red flowers awarded each day as tokens for good behaviour. But Qiang doesn't win any flowers: he can't yet dress himself, and doesn't play together with the other kids. He even dares to talk back to the strict Teacher Li and Principal Kong when they try to impose some discipline on him.Director: Yuan Zhang.Cast: Yuanyuan Ning, Chen Manyuan, Zhao Rui, Yujia Sun, Ma Du, Runqiu Liu, Ziye Wang, Yanghao Zhang.China, Italy, 2006.

DE. Die Kinder eines Neubauviertels haben auf und um einen Baum herum allerhand Lärminstrumente aufgebaut: Topfdeckel, Schlaghölzer, Bratpfannen, Flaschen, Klingeln, Tuten usw. Von Zeit zu Zeit erzeugen sie teils lustige, teils lästige Geräusche, die von den Erwachsenen nicht immer gern gehört werden. Der einzige, der für die Kinder Verständnis hat, ist der Berufsmusiker Herr Kling, der in einem Orchester den Kontrabass spielt. Bum hat ein besonderes Instrument: Bei einem Altwarenhändler bekommt er einen Ladenhüter geschenkt, den dieser nicht verkaufen kann, da er unvollständig ist. Es handelt sich hier um das Oberteil eines Metallbettes, das einst der Prinzessin Anna Amalia gehörte. In seiner Phantasie erzeugt Bum auf diesem Bettgestell Töne, die von einem Xylophon stammen könnten.
Mehrere Tage fährt ein Lautsprecherwagen durch die Stadt und kündigt an, dass im Wohngebiet ein „Fest der guten Einfälle“ veranstaltet wird. Bum will mit seinen Freunden und dem Bratpfannenorchester dort auftreten. Nur gibt es immer wieder Streit zwischen den Kindern. Da kommt eine alte Teekanne aus Blech ins Spiel, die per Trick lebendig wird, um die Kinder bei ernsthaften Musizierversuchen zu unterstützen, die sich aber in Rauch auflöst, wenn Zank und Streit aufkommen. Die Kanne ist originell, kann musizieren, laufen und ist mitunter komisch in ihren Aktionen. Mit ihrer Unterstützung gelingt es dem Bratpfannenorchester zum großen Fest gemeinsam mit einem richtigen Orchester aufzutreten.
EN. For the "Festival of good ideas" that is to take place in their residential quarter the musically enthusiastic young Bum wants to rehearse a music show along with his friends. With pans, cans, hooters and other junk they make music. Some adults get angry about that. Others like the second-hand dealer Dohlenei and Mr Kling from the symphony orchestra help the children to make their fantastic idea come true.
