The Munduruku Indians: Weaving Resistance- being shown on July 11th in London

Film maker Nia Pora invites you to the preview of the documentary project I have been working for the last months: The Munduruku Indians: Weaving Resistance.
It's going to be screened next Friday, July 11, 8.30pm, at the Rich Mix, and I also highly recommend the other two films being shown that night: Corumbiara by the great educator and filmmaker Vincent Carelli and Toxic by the journalist Felipe Milanez.

These films will give you a very deep understanding of some key issues the Amazon rainforest, and it's people, have been currently facing.

The short documentary The Mundurukus Indians - Weaving Resistance, directed by Nayana Fernandez, will be featured at the Amazon Film Fest on Friday 11th July, 8.30pm.

The film documents the resistance of the Mundukurus community to protect their living environment against the construction of a series of dams on the Tapajos River, a project that will cause the destruction of local biodiversity and disruption of the way of life of thousands of Amerindians.
