The northwest Amazon river area is one of the principal centres of masks in South America. Among the Makuna masked festivals are held at the harvest of particular crops and play a large ritual role. The film shows the different stages of making a mask: making the reddish-brown bark cloth and twisting the threads, sewing on a hoop of liana as frame for the face, modelling the face of resin, and affixing balsa sticks serving as eyes and nose. Geomtric designs are then made on the face in white and yellow, a tuft of hair made of bark fibres is attached, and the completed mask is tried on. The mask symbolizes a fish demon.
