Fighting COVID-19 in the Xingu Indigenous Territory
St Andrews had the privilege of premiering Piratá's film about the Wauja community and its attempts to keep their village safe from COVID-19. The film looks at village life during the pandemic, including the work of village shamans as healers.
Having seen the film, staff and students had a unique opportunity to talk live with Piratá, relayed via Zoom from the village to the University's Panopto lecture service, and ask questions about the making of the film and the current situation in the Waujá village.
