哥伦比亚沃佩斯省从1970年代就开始源源不断地吸引着人类学家。影片将萨满讲述的三个亚马逊的古老传说关联起来，凸显了族群里的智者们的口语表达，他们守护着自己的文化，又将其适用于新的年代。 瓦马哈人语言所具有的音乐感，叙述的非线性，同深沉的场景表达混同起来， 为观者提供了一个重叠且不断翻新的现实。
Wai : fish, Maha : people.
Shot in the Columbian Vaupès, a region which has attracted anthropologists since the 1970s, the film relates three ancestral Amazonian legends told by shamans. It foregrounds the spoken word of learned men and women who keep this culture alive and adapt it to the 21st century. The musicality of their language and their non-linear narration of this culture's thought meld with contemplative tableaux, rendering a double and renewed reality for the spectator.
