“Shur Abelinui wam yo kutri kitrop pichip (Trenzando el pensamiento de shur Abelino)”

José Antonio Dorado Zúñiga (Colombia)

Portrait about the taita Abelino Dagua (1926-2015) co-realized in the framework of the Ethnic Intercultural Audiovisual Laboratory, with a group of indigenous peasant students of Ala Kusreik Ya Misak University of the Cabildo Indígena de Wampía (Colombia).

For the Misak the dead never die but travel to the "kansrɵ", a world parallel to everyday life from which they return through dreams to advise their loved ones.

The documentary invokes and recreates the presence, memory and some teachings of shur Abelino from the kansrɵ, resorting to interviews that one of the students recorded him in life, but also appealing to staging and interviews that the students themselves recorded with cell phones in sacred places, to pay homage to one of the most remarkable Guambiano intellectuals, who assumed from the Misak thought the own research, to strengthen the indigenous resistance and struggle for the conservation of the territory, language and culture of the Misak people.
