The Condor and the Eagle: Taking on tar sands development

condor-eagle-film.jpgThe Condor and The Eagle is an ambitious documentary project that follows four individuals as they take on tar sands extraction, Indigenous genocide and environmental violence. Meet the film makers and Bryan Parras, one of the key-individuals featured in the film at this screening of the 15-minute trailer.

Modernity has challenged First Nation peoples causing more and more loss of ancestral lands, traditions, rituals and cultures.  We are at a turning point, a time when First Nation peoples are striving to revive their traditional knowledge against the threats that industrial mega projects represent.

The film addresses:

    • The rise of the environmental movement
    • Climate change
    • Indian genocide caused by modern industrial machinery
    • Intercultural awareness
    • Women’s leadership
    • Values of respect for nature
    • Community organizing strategies

The filmmakers, Sophie & Clement Guerra, have launched a crowdfunding campaign aimed at helping their project, Indigenous Alliances: Tar Sands & Amazon, reach its funding goal. Please visit the project link to lend your support.
