The Condor and The Eagle - Houston Premiere (Virtual!)

The Condor and The Eagle - Houston Premiere (Virtual!)

EVENT DETAILS

Filmed over six years, the film showcases four indigenous leaders who embark on a trans-continental journey from the Canadian plains to deep into the heart of the Amazonian jungle to unify the peoples of North and South America. This film documents the stories of these four well-known Native environmental spokespeople who are at the forefront of a perspective shift in the identity of their people, from forgotten voices to strong shared communities with the power to bring change to the entire world. Their path through the jungle takes them on an unexpectedly challenging and liberating journey, which will forever change their attachment to the Earth and one another. A panel discussion will follow the screening. Participants have a chance to discuss the film with local experts. Activists on the panel include: Dr. Robert Bullard (the Father of environmental justice and Distinguished Professor of Urban Planning and Environmental Policy at T.S.U.), Bryan Parras (film protagonist) and Marco Garcia (Sunrise Movement Houston and U.H. student activist). Iris Gonzalez (Director of the Coalition for Environment, Equity and Resilience) will serve as moderator.
