UK Green Film Festival/ The Wind Blows the Border

Directed by Laura Faerman & Marina Weis

The story of Faerman and Weis’ documentary takes place on Brazil’s violent border with Paraguay; the home of the Guarani-Kaiowá people and the heart of Brazilian agribusiness. Whilst following the growth of ruralist political power (and its close ties to the Bolsonaro government), The Wind Blows The Border also portrays the intimacy of indigenous female resistance, with their communal ideals and struggle for the planet. The process culminates with the imminent loss of indigenous constitutional rights at the hands of the political power wielded by large landowners.
