The TUWUN concept represents the Mapuche territorial origin, which together with KVPALME, the family origin, represent the Mapuche identity rooted in the LOF, a territorial space that in turn is the basis of the ancestral territorial structure of a broader space, the WALLMAPU, the entire Mapuche territory.

This concept of Mapudungun, the Mapuche language, gives rise to TUWUN Muestra de Cine Indígena de Wallmapu, created with the aim of making known through cinema, that identity and the realities related from ancestral knowledge and the way in which it is understood. life from the vision and relationship of each people with their environment, with their territory, with their own history, culture and spirituality and, therefore, from their own perspective.

In this sense, we believe that the TUWUN exhibition represents a valuable opportunity to learn about the way in which life is understood from the indigenous peoples' own culture and an important space to share the perspective and reality expressed from their own representative voices, through of the cinema. In addition to contributing to the decentralization of cinema and culture, generating a process of circulation at the territorial level and taking the traveling exhibition and its complementary activities to a wide and diverse public, in urban and rural areas, with the exhibition of the participating works in various spaces, such as Mapuche communities, schools and cultural centers in towns that generally have difficulty accessing the cinema because they are far from large urban centers, also generating Nvtram (conversation) spaces around its contents.

TUWUN is an indigenous film exhibition that consists mainly of the realization of a Central Exhibition, which takes place every year for 4 days, in the Municipal Cultural Center of Villarrica, accompanied by activities carried out in various areas of the city. And of an Itinerant Exhibition, which covers various places in Wallmapu, the Mapuche ancestral territory (southern Chile and Argentina) and is held from the month following the central exhibition, until June of the following year, where for the Mapuche people The cycle ends and begins again with the celebration of Wiñoy Tripantu (Mapuche New Year).

Within the framework of TUWUN, we develop various complementary activities, both during the central exhibition and during the traveling exhibition. Among them, a TRAWUN (meeting), special screenings by guests of indigenous peoples and the Mapuche people, NVTRAMCINE (cinema forums), TUWUN screenings inserted in other film and culture competitions, screenings for schools and communities, special cycles in the summer season . And a workshop for the appreciation of cinema with identity, which we have designed for training and mediation with different audiences, such as children and young people of school age, adults, leaders of organizations, Mapuche communities, etc.

TUWUN Muestra de Cine Indígena de Wallmapu, is coordinated and produced by ADKIMVN Cine y Comunicación Mapuche, with the sponsorship of the Municipal Cultural Center and the Illustrious Municipality of Villarrica, the Mapuche Wenteche Mapu Association, the Mapuche Parliament of Koz Koz, the Mapuche Confederation of Neuquén, the collaboration of Espacio Arte KoPanqui and a network of organizations, cultural centers, municipal departments of culture, Mapuche communities and educational centers.
