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.
