Futures at Risk

In Focus: Futures at Risk

Colonial hegemonies still exist. This is reflected in the threats indigenous communities experience around the world. They are still the oppressed and disempowered, the displaced and the uprooted. But they are not passive victims of history, but rather with their quest for self-determination and cultural preservation represent those values ​​that are important not only for themselves and their cultural survival but also for the future sustainability and ecological preservation of the planet.
The journey in these films takes us from Thailand (I am Golden Karen) to Borneo (Be ‘Jam Be – The Never Ending Song) and Tahiti (Ma’Ohi Nui, In the Heart of the Ocean My Country lies) and across the Pacific to Colombia (Thinking Like A Mountain) and Ecuador (Spears form all Sides).
