Gyuri Extraits, 2020 - a movie by Mariana Lacerda

Gyuri is a documentary exploring the extraordinary life of Claudia Andujar from her origins in the small town of Nagyvárad, Hungary to her work as a photographer and activist in the Brazilian Amazon. Andjuar describes her escape from Nazi-occupied Europe during World War II and her immigration to Brazil, where she begins her career as a photographer. Fascinated by the cultures of Brazil's indigenous peoples, she develops a long-term photographic project devoted to the Yanomami. Living within a Yanomami community, she captures their daily life and rapidly becomes involved in the the struggle for the demarcation of their territory.
