The film Dystopia of a Jungle City, and the Human of Nature (2019) by Carla Maldonado is a haunting ode to the daily life of indigenous people in fragile harmony with nature, and an alarming call for action against the far-right regime of Jair Bolsonaro, which aggressively attacked the laws protecting the Amazon Jungle and its people.
