Wási (to see) is the story of a day of seeing (themselves) in the Arhuaco community in Kutunzama (Magdalena, Colombia). From the hand of the Arhuaco filmmaker Amado Villafaña, we enter into what it means to see for the indigenas Arhuacos. From the viewing of photographs and films, we approach how the Arhuaco people have been visually represented from the outside and what Amado’s interpretation of these representations is, in an exercise of seeing, seeing and representing themselves.
