Check-in will begin one hour prior to start time. Seating is limited and first come, first served. Advance registration does not guarantee seating; early arrival is suggested.

Because seating starts one full hour prior to the start of the movie, please be advise that if you show up at the last minute you are probably not getting in.
I will be there at 5:30 and if there is a line at that time text me so I can tell you where I am in the line and you can join me (this cutting the line...ha!)

Water, Sound, and Indigenous Film: Antonio and Piti

The Amônia River runs near the border of Brazil and Peru, where both indigenous Ashaninka people and white settlers live in the municipality of Marechal Thaumaturgo. Produced by the Vídeo nas Aldeias collective, Antonio and Piti explores the love between a Peruvian-born indigenous man and the daughter of Chico Coló, a white rubber tapper soldier. The film tells the story of their community-led reforestation project and the pressures of a predatory and extractive economy.

With Co-Directors Vincent Carelli and Wewito Piyãko. Response by Esther Hamburger, Film and Media Studies, and University of São Paulo. Organized by Ron Gregg, Film and Media Studies, and Ana Ochoa and Maria Fantinato Geo de Siqueira, Music.

Ashaninka and Portuguese, 78 minutes, Protected content .
