Uýra – The Rising Forest

Photo Credit: PBS POV

Uýra shares ancestral knowledge with Indigenous youth in the Amazon to promote the significance of identity and place, threatened by Brazil’s oppressive political regime. Through dance, poetry, and stunning characterization, Uýra confronts historical racism, transphobia, and environmental destruction, while emphasizing the interdependence of humans and the environment. Co-presented with Latino Public Broadcasting (LPB) and Peril and Promise, a public media initiative from The WNET Group. For more information about the film, visit pov.org.
