THE LAST FOREST \u2022 In-Person Screening
ENGLISH:
Through elaborate storytelling in which the Yanomami themselves re-enact their creation story of two brothers and a water goddess, this hybrid documentary gives space to Brazil’s largest native community to steer the narrative and bring us closer to their way of understanding the world. As their unchanged, elemental way of life competes with the lure of the developed white world across the river, Kopenawa and his peers fight against the poisoning of the rivers where they bathe and fish, whilst striving to keep their thousand-year-old culture intact.

“Only in our forest can you sleep in peace” Davi Kopenawa

“visually and sonically rich without falling back on empty exoticist spectacle” Variety
