Aluna, the follow-up to Alan Ereira’s 1990 BBC doc, From the Heart of the World: The Elder Brother’s Warning, has begun production.

While the first documentary introduced the world to the Kogi tribe, Aluna will follow a Kogi girl and her father journeying to the UK, marking the first time a female Kogi has left Colombia. The trip is set for July of this year.

The doc will be shot on the new Red Epic camera, and the production team aims to be completed by January 2012.

The Kogi tribe live hidden on an isolated mountain on the Colombian Caribbean coast, and as seen in the BBC doc, they believe they exist to care for the world and keep its natural order functioning.

Ereira is currently in discussion with film distributors about the cinematic release of Aluna, which is funded by private investors, due in early 2012.
