Terra Yanomami

claudia-andujar ImageThe Yanomami have not been properly consulted about their views and have little access to independent information about the impacts of mining.

Davi Kopenawa, a leading Yanomami spokesman and President of Hutukara

Yanomami Association, warns of the dangers.

‘The Yanomami people do not want the national congress to approve the law or the president to sign it. We do not want to accept this law.

‘Our land has to be respected. Our land is our heritage, a heritage which protects us.’

‘Mining will only destroy nature. It will only destroy the streams and the rivers and kill the fish and kill the environment – and kill us. And bring in diseases which never existed in our land.’

Tempestades Ensaio  de Um Ensaio

A documentary essay about text
that penetrates lives and lives that penetrate text.
In September 2015 the GRIOT theater – a company in Lisbon, whose actors are mostly afro-descendants – started the rehearsal of The Tempest, original title) with acclaimed director Bruno Bravo in a small coastal village. Starting with the first rehearsals the movie explores the text Shakespeare and the biography of the actors, the play and the landscape and covers topics such as memory, home, emigration, colonialism and resistance. A complex mosaic of multiple voices.


Heritales @ Teatro do Recreio Desportivo da Trafaria (Casino) (28th of September 2019)

Games in the Casino

Playing is one of the best learning practice for children and adults as stress by Johan Huizinga, Homo Ludens: A Study of the Play-Element in Culture
This is why for the European days of Heritage we decide to propose to the public a unique event of two parallel games activities: the first is dedicated to board games that will present to the audience the possibility to challenge each other throughout competitions of intelligence and other rapid skills The games will be a compendium of traditional and more modern games that revisit cultural heritages from all over the world such as Carrom(India) and Mancala (Africa), but also more modern board games dealing with archaeological quests and storytelling challenges.
The second will propose the presentation on a big screen of different video-games, from the more historical classical titles such as Portugal 1111 to the exploration mode of Assassin Creed. Moreover we will present video-games made by independents companies. These nowadays are exploring the possibility of creating work inspired in collaboration with indigenous tribes in order to promote titles that, as Gabrielle Hughes in the 2017 Edition of Heritales Film Festival presented: “respect the authenticity and protection for Indigenous heritage”.

Heritales @ Preocupada (Casa Branca – Portugal (18th of July 2019)

Heritales in the Village

The CineClube & Municipal Theater of Montemor-o-Novo in partnership with the Festival Heritales, are joining this year at the event of th  Oficina do Convento, Preoccupada with the intention of taking the cinema to the nearby village of Casa Branca.
What is the importance of a look, what is the interest of reflecting and questioning the ideas of heritage of inheritance and identity. What we want as future. These are some of the questions that come up when we find places like the Casa Branca. Places built for specific functions, places that were inhabited, lived and left memories, now forgotten and lost in their insignificance, before the needs of today’s society. However, a new look and a new perception, together with the will to make happen, rediscovering needs to the detriment of uselessness and apathy, results in the rebirth, the reinterpretation of spaces and people, functions and memories to transform what seems illusory doomed at last, in a new possibility of life.
It is with this idea in our head and heart that we will exhibit films. With the purpose of inspiring the community exactly for this fight against desertification, against abandonment, against lowering the arms before the unlikely possibility of victory of the collective will and effort. The cinema is also a form of struggle, of passing the message, of contributing, changing for the better our lives, and the places we go.
If the song is a weapon of intervention, cinema is the action that complements it. (traslation from the website Oficinas do Convento)
