SYNOPSIS

Wildres and Geydy Wood are two indigenous sisters, the first a biologist and the second an art historian, both of Miskito origin. They take us on a journey to the heart of the second most important jungle in Latin America, from the myths, legends and local stories of the inhabitants of Las Marías, the sisters explore the ancestral ties that remain in the collective imagination and reveal an underground archaeological secret of global importance and its indigenous connection with nature. Two treasures protected by the same blood, two treasures that are at risk of disappearing if we do not act in time. A story that proposes a look from inside the territory, with female leaders and that immerses us in an unknown world.

MOTIVATION

For me as a woman and a filmmaker it is important to tell the story of "I am Rain" through its two main protagonists Geydy and Wildres Wood seeking in this way to decolonize our narratives from their perspective; in them two as sisters inhabit the true stories of the Miskitu people, from the perspective of Geydy as the first art historian of her culture, today she is immersed in her mission to discover the origin of the inhabitants of the mythical white city and his sister Wildres who is the first Miskitu biologist, motivated to conserve their territory, the second largest lung in Latin America, the biosphere of the Banana River. 

 

With this story we weave the connecting threads between human civilizations and their relationship with nature through the eyes and voices of two Miskitu sisters (Geydy and Wildres) in this contemporary world.
