Film screening and panel discussion for the award-winning documentary, Guardians of the Forest
Apr 13, 2022, 6:00 - 8:00 PM
Virtual event via Zoom
The film tells the inspiring story of the Maijuna Indigenous group of the Peruvian Amazon as they fight for their biologically rich ancestral lands and cultural survival. The Maijuna culture is sustained and nourished by their heavily forested ancestral territory, which is increasingly threatened by outsiders. After introducing and screening the film, this event will culminate in a question-and-answer session with Maijuna leaders and the film’s producer and director.
