THE WIND BLOWS THE BORDER by Laura Faerman and Marina Weis
Brazil, 1h18′
The story takes place on the violent and devastated border between Brazil and Paraguay, in the Ñande Ru Marangatu Indigenous Territory – land disputed by the Guarani-Kaiowá, who have inhabited the region for at least 1500 years, and the farmers who arrived there in the 1940s. Starting from this dispute, the film closely follows the growth of the farmers’ political power and its links with the president of Brazil, Jair Bolsonaro. At the same time, it portrays the intimacy of the indigenous female resistance, with its collective ideals and the struggle for the planet.
