Kipara: Kincha Uagabadara “Guardianes de la memoria Emberá Dóbida en Bojayá, Chocó”

Carlos Alberto Molano Monsalve / Alejandra Molina López (Colombia)

Kipara: Kincha uagabadara. Guardianes de la memoria Emberá Dóbida en Bojayá, Chocó, is an analogous animation that tells the stories that revolve around the ancestral practice of jagua in the indigenous communities of Medio Atrato.

This territory has witnessed the painful passage of war; in it, the spirits of the plants, animals and waters have sustained its inhabitants, the sons and daughters of the river, who invoke and vindicate through dance, music, songs, medicinal plants and body painting, their struggles for the defense of life and territory.

The jagua, Kipara, in the Emberá language, has been the inspiration for the construction of this creative process that invites us to embark on the memory, through the colors, sounds and textures condensed in this animation.
