“Bomi” – An old salt miner lives in a remote village, barely scraping by from his sales of salt. His children have gone to the city to find work. The old generation working in the village is disappearing; the village is empty. (Kiumars Sarshar, 15 min, Iran)

“Mi’Gwidelmag Gnittjgamitj (Remembering Our Grandpa)” – Inspired by the Incident at Restigouche (Alanis Obomsawin, 1984) Mi’gwidelmag Gnitjgamitj is a short essay film that captures the beautiful landscapes of Listuguj, and a dark side of Canada. (Nation Isaac, 7 min, Canada)

“The Condor and the Eagle” – Four Indigenous leaders embark on an extraordinary trans-continental adventure from the Canadian plains to deep into the heart of the Amazonian jungle to unite the peoples of North and South America and deepen the meaning of “Climate Justice”. 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. (Clement & Sophie Guerra, 90 min.)
