«One of the strangest films I have ever seen; its characters come and go as if they're 'primitives' posing for the camera, either obeying or fighting an ethnographer's controlling eye.» - Fred Camper, Chicago Reader
Culled from four rolls of Super-8 film shot while the maker was a development worker in a small South American village, Daumë is at its center a film about ritual, power, and play. Daumë is both ethnography and critique; it is an interrogation into how to represent a place that can't be represented.
