The Invention Of The Other is an epic, intimate and procedural documentary about one of the most important missions ever carried out in the depths of the Amazon rainforest to try to find and establish contact with a group of isolated indigenous people of the Korubo ethnic group in a state of vulnerability and try to promote a delicate reunion with part of the family already contacted a few years before. Bruno Pereira, who would be later murdered in the same region and turned into an international symbol in favor of the indigenous and the forest, leads the expedition.

Director's notes

De Bubuia Cine (formerly called João de Barro Cinema Independente) was created in 2003 by filmmaker Bruno Jorge with the main objective of producing his own cinema works in an absolutely independent way. Since then, he has produced numerous films of the most different genres and lengths, selected and awarded at various festivals around the world. Among the shortfilms we could mention "Setback" (best film at Festival do Rio, Lab Competition Clermont-Ferrand), "Justice to Insult" (Cannes, Rotterdam), "November, December" (IDFA), "Catuçaba" and "The Barons" (both premiered in Visions du Réel). Some feature-length documentaries are "What I could be if I were" (best film ABD at Semana dos Realizadores, Brazil) and the newest film “The invention of the other” that won the prize of best film by the official at Festival de Cinema de Brasília and Docville, Belgium), . De Bubuia is currently in different stages of production for 3 different feature films and a documentary series filmed on the banks of the Transamazônica highway in the heart of Amazon forest with around 20 families for 3 months during the pandemic period.
