Award-winning filmmaker, Alan Ereira, will be returning to the Kogi tribe with his newly announced feature length doc, Aluna. Ereira’s 1990 BBC documentary From the Heart of the World: The Elder Brother’s Warning, introduced the Kogi tribe to audiences. The Kogi live on an isolated mountain on the Colombian Caribbean coast and are the last high civilization from the time of the Inca and Aztec. The first documentary gave the Kogi an opportunity to warn the world about mining and deforestation, which was threatening their existance, and the new documentary will give the Kogi another chance to address the topic, 10 years later.
