Rio & Cine: The Last Forest

Recommended minimum level: beginner

Hey, guys!

We’ve prepared an unmissable Rio & Cinema event in honor of Indigenous Peoples’ Day, and you’re our special guests! We’ll be screening the Brazilian documentary “The Last Forest,” which will take us on a fascinating journey through the life and challenges faced by the Yanomami people in the Amazon.

In this gripping film, we’ll follow the story of shaman Davi Kopenawa Yanomami, who fights to preserve the spirits of the forest and the traditions of his people, even in the face of devastation caused by the arrival of gold miners. We’ll see how the community grapples with death, disease, and the loss of their cultural identity in an isolated territory.

Additionally, the documentary delves into the generational conflict, with young people drawn to the goods brought by the white settlers while the elders strive to keep ancestral wisdom alive.

So, get ready for a deep and inspiring cinematic experience!

Don’t miss this opportunity to connect with the culture and challenges faced by Indigenous peoples. We hope to see you there for a screening that will open our eyes and our hearts! 🌳🎥
