Part of Green Screen: Philadelphia Environmental Film Festival
Closing Night Film
Deep in the jungles of Brazil, the Indigenous Uru-eu-wau-wau people have been fighting for their homes and their lives for decades. Facing illegal invasions from destructive companies who seek the rubber and tin deposits that can be mined from their homeland, the Uru-eu-wau-wau and their defenders take matters into their own hands. This riveting, Sundance Audience Award-winning documentary follows the effort of activists and young leaders in a fight to preserve the rainforest. When the local right-wing government turns a blind eye to corporate greed and corruption, our protagonists utilize everything from technology to settlement building in the hopes of preserving their way of life and the land they call home.
