Film has the unique capacity to transport viewers and expose them to experiences they might not otherwise encounter, cultivating greater compassion and empathy for others. Join us for a full screening of the films Tribes on the Edge and Paris to Pittsburgh that are inspiring viewers across the world. In partnership with Denver Film, Series Fest & Bloomberg Philanthropies.
A documentary produced by CauseCentric Productions, directed and produced by Céline Cousteau – explores the timely topics of land threats, health crises, and human rights issues of indigenous peoples, expanding the view to how this is relevant to our world. More than a film, it has grown into movement driven by a passionate effort to enact tangible impact in the Javari through education, advocacy, and activism initiatives.
From coastal cities to America’s heartland, Paris to Pittsburgh celebrates how Americans are demanding and developing real solutions in the face of climate change. And as the weather grows more deadly and destructive, they aren’t waiting on Washington to act.
