POV: Uýra – The Rising Forest


Uýra shares ancestral knowledge with Indigenous youth in the Amazon to promote the significance of identity and place, threatened by Brazil’s oppressive political regime. Through dance, poetry and stunning characterization, Uýra confronts historical racism, transphobia and environmental destruction, while emphasizing the interdependence of humans and the environment. This film is co-presented with Latino Public Broadcasting (LPB) and Peril and Promise, a public media initiative from The WNET Group.
