LUBARAUN (f) dir: María José Álvarez
Nicaragua | 2014 | 65 min | Garifuna, Spanish and Creole English; subtitled in English | PG

Lubaraun is an ethnographic film with road movie elements filmed on the Caribbean coast of Nicaragua and Honduras; where endearing characters reveal the cosmo-vision of the Garifuna nation.

The film gives voice to a people who have lived in resistance to colonialism, and now struggle to maintain their identity, as well as their humanist and environmentally friendly way of living. The poignant journey of an elder from the Orinoco Garifuna community back to the land of his ancestors on the mainland highlights the heritage of the Garifuna people in their similar way of living, respect for each other and the love of family.
