RIRIA – Niña Tierra, is a documentary that through a Cosmovision of the indigenous community Bribri-Cabecar that lives in the nature reserve of Alta
Talamanca in Costa Rica, reflects the difficult relationship between the man and the earth.
An analysis, from the local to the universal, of the “cultural” root which is the base of the environmental problems that the planet is facing in this era.
SINOPSY “IRIRIA is a fat child girl, God SIBÖ decided to create the Earth from her skin, after that, sow the seed and created life ….”
This is the beginning of IRIRIA tell – NIÑA TIERRA documentary will be a blend into a world view and actuality, journalism, anthropology and movie, across BRIBRI-CABECAR tribe description of the native reserve of Alta Talamanca in Costa Rica. The countless characters voice, from AWA (medicine man) to the ancient sages, from the Teacher of culture BRIBRI of the COROMA school to the local ADITIBRI government, they tell us about an alive earth which hears and sees thank to the Forest Spirits, Sea ones, Hurricane and Animals; also it talks to us trough its natural events such as earthquake, floods and global warming that we are facing today with desperation. Nature itself (documentary main character) will take us with its visual impact and its wonderful energy, into the cultural analysis of human behavior into its environment in which lives without respecting it. It is a trip around the world view, spirituality, earth defense, human behavior, broken balances, interpretation and reading natural disasters from the local to the universe.
From the analysis of human and earth relation, not sustainable anymore, we
can outline a vision of the future in which a change,
a cultural one before the technical, it will impose by the IRIRIA strenght if the
man wont be able to change it, in time.
