A double screening of two films:

Flyer

1) Heat 
(Quentura, Brazil, 2018, 36 min.), Dir. Mari Corrêa

Too hot! The spawning fish do not come at the right time and the pepper plants end up dying in this heat. "This is a very different weather that not even the spirits can understand." From their gardens, homes, and backyards, the indigenous women of the Amazon involve us in their vast universe of knowledge while they observe the impacts of climate change in their ways of life.

2) Yarang Mamin 
(Brazil, 2019, 21 min.), Dir. Kamatxi Ikpeng

In the Xingu Indigenous Territory (Mato Grosso, Brazil), indigenous filmmaker Kamatxi Ikpeng documents the history of a group of Ikpeng women who have started a movement to collect seeds and reforest the headwaters of the Xingu River. With images from the everyday life of the work of the women, this short film presents their hopes and achievements of this group, which has already planted around one million trees that will make up the forest of the future.

Miguel Rojas Sotelo will introduce and facilitate discussion of the films.
