The Amazon Rainforest and Brazil's Indigenous peoples are under increasing attack with President Bolsonaro and his regime's devastating assaults on social and environmental protections. Women's Earth and Climate Action Network (WECAN) International organized travels in New York for Sônia Bone Guajajara, a prominent Indigenous leader, to denounce Bolsonaro's assaults, and to advocate for the rights of Indigenous Peoples, the climate, and the protection of the Amazon.

The New Environmentalists - From Liberia to Mongolia
John Antonelli, Will Parrinello, Matt Yamashita | 2019 | 39 min
The New Environmentalists share a common goal - safeguarding the Earth's natural resources from exploitation and pollution, while fighting for justice in their communities. The film is the latest in the Mill Valley Film Group's Emmy Award-winning series featuring inspiring portraits of six passionate and dedicated activists. These are true environmental heroes who have placed themselves squarely in harm's way to battle intimidating adversaries while building strong grassroots support. Narrated by Robert Redford, The New Environmentalists illustrates how ordinary people are effecting extraordinary change.

The Undamaged
Rožle Bregar, Matič Oblak, Miha Avguštin | 2018 | 51 min
Follow Balkan Rivers Tour, a crew of whitewater kayakers, filmmakers, photographers and friends who decided to stand up for the rivers. They travel from Slovenia to Albania for 36 days, kayaking 23 rivers in 6 countries to protest the dams and show the world the secret, wild rivers of the Balkans. The Undamaged honors everyday people and local activists who are fighting to defend rivers and aims to spread the word of their plight.
