Filmed on location in Peru, Colombia and Brazil, the documentary Stepping Softly on the Earth (2022) provides a vision for a possible future for humanity, with an alternative to destruction that is based on the ancestral life of native populations. The film focuses its narrative on three Indigenous leaders who are survivors of the capitalist war in the Amazon and struggle to keep their ways of being alive and coexisting in the world without destroying it.
The film will be followed by a Q&A moderated by Susanna Hecht (Center for Brazilian Studies) and Alexander Ungprateeb Flynn (Department of World Arts and Cultures/Dance).
