Hakani is a 30 minute movie alleging the occurrence of infanticide in tribal communities in Brazil. It was by ATINI and Youth With A Mission, the director's father's organization.
The Brazilian government officials said "the missionaries are exaggerating and exploiting the issue to justify their attempts to convert Indians to Christianity".
