About the event

Join us for this multidisciplinary event featuring screenings of Brazilian Indigenous films and Native North American films, focusing on the perspectives of Indigenous women, their vital narratives, and their connection to the environment and land protection. The roundtables and Q&As with scholars and filmmakers will address the role of Indigenous cinema in creating spaces of (re)existence in times of extreme violence and repression while imagining futures.
