“Terra Libre” Documentary Available to Watch Online Oct. 20 – 30
October 21, 2022
About the film: A logbook, an investigation, but also a historical panorama retracing a struggle of more than 30 years, ‘Terra Libre’ exposes the inertia, the renunciation and the compromises of leaders who have become accomplices, and sometimes even actors, of mass ecocide.
An excerpt from the film will also be screened at the Oct. 27 Climate Stories from UBC event along with a discussion with film director Gert-Peter Bruch and Chief Ninawa, hereditary Chief of the Huni Kui Indigenous people of the Amazon, and PWIAS International Indigenous Scholar.
Moderated by Dr. Vanessa Andreotti, PWIAS Interim Director, Canada Research Chair in Race, Inequalities and Global Change and David Lam Chair of Multicultural Education. The screening and discussion will launch a discussion on Indigenous land rights and resistance in the fight to protect the Amazon region.
