Event Description

The Princeton Brazil LAB hosts an online film screening and discussion of the documentary film “Amazonia Undercover” by Brazilian filmmaker Estevão Ciavatta.

The film explores how, due to the failure of the Brazilian government to protect the Amazon, Cacique Juarez Saw Munduruku is leading an unprecedented union of Indigenous and riverside people to save the forest confronting land grabbers and illegal deforestation.

Ciavatta will talk about his film with Rob Nixon, the Thomas A. and Currie C. Barron Family Professor in Humanities and the Environment and professor of English and the Princeton Environmental Institute; Ilona Szabó, co-founder and executive director of Instituto Igarapé; and environmentalist Beto Veríssimo, senior researcher and co-founder of Amazon Institute of People and Environment (Imazon) and Amazônia 2030.

This event is open to the public and will be live-streamed on the Brazil LAB’s YouTube channel.
