Chumpi and Father at Waterfall  Chumpi

A young boy, Chumpi, his father, Secha, and his grandfather, Irar, make an upriver trip to a sacred waterfall, where both adults received their visions as young men. They travel through the tropical rainforest in an adventure into the spiritual world of these indigenous people. Their journey gives insight into the Achuar culture, as they try to continue their traditions while facing conflicts with oil companies and the encroaching industrial world.
