Join us for the premier screening of the ground-breaking documentary, "Belo Monte: After the Flood," featuring a panel discussion with Amazon Watch and International Rivers, and live music.
"Belo Monte: After the Flood" is a new film directed by award-winning environmental documentarian Todd Southgate, and produced with International Rivers, Amazon Watch and Cultures of Resistance. The film explores the history and consequences of one of the world's most controversial dam projects, built on the Xingu River in the heart of the Brazilian Amazon.
Todd has documented the conflicts surrounding the Belo Monte Hydroelectric project over the course of seven years. Through interviews with indigenous leaders, activists and local residents, the documentary illustrates how this multi-billion dollar mega-project has left a disastrous legacy of broken promises and socio-environmental damage, and shattered livelihoods among local communities of the Xingu.
It also highlights that the inspiring work of indigenous peoples, grassroots activists, and their allies in the struggle for justice and accountability, as the Amazon faces more dam threats similar to Belo Monte. The screening will include opportunities for participants to get involved with ongoing efforts to support indigenous movements in the Amazon.
A $10-$20 sliding scale donation will be requested at the door. No one turned away for lack of funds. We look forward to seeing you there!
