Documentary: Tinku ritual in Bolivia. A pre-colonial cultural manifestation that survives to this day, but has suffered losses over the years. The film shows scenes from the festival, two interviews, one with the Belgian anthropologist Vincent Nicolas and the other with an old resident of the town of San Pedro de Macha, one of the main places where Tinku takes place.
