Summary In Dancing With a Dog we experience the rhythm of daily life on the Rio Amônea. Kowire and his wife Withawo get up early to take care of their eight children, preparing food and making handcrafts for sale. Kowire is helping his son to build a house, and after work for the day is finished there is fish and cassava root for dinner. On weekends, the Piâretsi celebration is full of with drinking, dancing and soccer. Everyone is fully at ease in the presence of the cameraman; there is plenty of joking and Kowire goes home a little drunk on caissiema beer.
