UNPO Screens Martirio a Film about The Pacific and obstinate Insurgence of the Guarani Kaiowa People

Somalilandsun-On 31 May 2017 at 18:00 the Unrepresented Nations and Peoples Organization (UNPO) – with the generous support of the Nando and Elsa Peretti Foundation – will organise a screening of the documentary Martírio – Filme at the Atelier Marcel Hastir. 

The event aims to raise awareness for the cause of the indigenous Guarani-Kaiowá communities in Mato Grosso do Sul (Brazil), who have struggled for the demarcation of their ancestral lands and for the respect of their human and minority rights. According Vincent Carrelli, who directed the film along with Ernesto de Carvalho and Tatiana Almeida, the present situation of the Guarani-Kaiowá in Brazil is the most critical in over a hundred years of struggles with the government and agricultural interests.
