Website del documental "Ainu. Caminos a la memoria"
‘Ainu. Pathways to Memory’ is a discovery documentary of the Ainu people in Japan. On a trip through the recovery of their identity, which took us from Japan to Europe, we will find a people erased from history books and scarred by discrimination which pushed them close to the final extinction.
People whose origins and language are still a mystery. The repeated sentence “I am Ainu” expresses a willingness of overcoming their marginal circumstances and recovery of their pride.
But the awakening of the Ainu people faces the mercantilist logic of a global world. Unavoidably, doubt comes to mind, what does being Ainu mean today?
