THE CONDOR AND THE EAGLE, which was screened at the 2019 Global Peace Film Festival, is a powerful educational resource that offers a trans-continental understanding of climate justice from the perspective of four leaders from environmentally impacted communities who embark on an extraordinary journey to unite the peoples of North and South America.
The film honors the Indigenous leaders who are fighting at the forefront of the climate struggle, as these protagonists learn from one another’s long legacy of resistance to colonialism and its extractive economy.
"The film is not only educational, but it leaves students feeling inspired to follow the example set by the film’s protagonists to take positive action for people and the environment."
