Um Outro Céu website tour & film screenings
20 April Free
6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Come to the UK launch of Um Outro Céu – mapping environmental conflicts in N.E. Brazil and showcasing new work by indigenous artists
Join Um Outro Céu (meaning Another Sky in Portuguese) researchers and artists to learn about this project and website that document and celebrate the emergence of different forms of resistance, narratives, constructions and reconstructions of worlds torn apart by conquest, colonialism and capitalism.
Amid the tragedy of the Covid-19 pandemic in Brazil, with deaths, mourning and the cowardly use of the virus as a tool to plunder indigenous peoples’ rights, different forms of healing have emerged in indigenous territories and from the memories of elders.
Um Outro Céu maps ecological conflicts in N.E. Brazil and showcases new art and film works by indigenous artists. It combines reports of defenders’ experiences, conflict cartography carried out by indigenous researchers and students, and works by indigenous artists exploring the effects of the pandemic, and ecological conflicts experienced by communities.
Um Outro Céu is a collaboration between the University of Sussex, Federal University of Bahia, Federal University of the Recôncavo of Bahia, and the State University of Bahia funded by the International Development Challenges Fund (Sussex / Research England) and part of the Atmospheres of Violence international research project funded by the British Academy.
After an initial introduction there will be a guided tour of the website, two short film screenings, comments from several of the artists and then an opportunity for questions/discussion.
