Young Indigenous Storytellers from Madre de Dios Present Short Films

15 Oct 2021

20 young Indigenous community members from Madre de Dios in Peru developed 20 short films to show to policymakers and to the world their own stories: their cultural heritage, their needs, the threats they face, their strategies to protect their forests and fight the climate crisis. This session showcases the first of these short films that form part of the first network of young community-based storytellers in COVID-19 times. Each short film is followed by a presentation from its filmmaker and comments from Vanessa Racua, Indigenous leader from FENAMAD (a regional indigenous organization), David Hernández, a professional Indigenous filmmaker from If not Us Then Who, and Paula Alvarado, international policy expert and Head of Communications of The Tenure Facility.
