Latin American Film Festival: March & April 2023

In our current global situation of climate change and environmental catastrophe, many environmental humanities scholars are turning to indigenous ontologies to seek out answers and guidance. The five movies curated for the festival showcase narratives from indigenous communities from several Latin American countries and portray their struggles and strategies of survival. With the festival, we hope to honor their voices by showcasing their work to our Rutgers community.

The 2023 Latin American Film Festival screening is organized by Mentoring for Social Justice and Community-Building Project participants Ariela Parisi, Rachel Perez, Celín Hidalgo, and Ivy Lopez-Flores.
