Guardians of the forest
Guardians of the Forest is a long term documentation of Indigenous ethnicities in Brazil, their daily lives, culture manifestations and struggles to ensure their existence in freedom, dignity and safety.
Facing constant threats such as loss of territory, invasions, illegal mining, deforestation, diseases and the restriction of their rights, they fight to keep their culture strong and the forests standing. Safeguarding nature, alerting and being
Indigenous peoples carry in their culture a deep knowledge of nature in a relationship of respect and belonging. A feeling we so often contempt, belonging. And forget how fragile and dependent we are of nature.
