Movie Night: Guardiana de los Ríos
October 10, 2018 @ 8:30 pm - 10:00 pm
Join the Whatcom Peace and Justice Center at the Alternative Library for a screening of Jennifer Avila’s documentary “Guardiana de los Ríos.”
This film focuses on the legacy of Berta Cáceres. Berta was a Honduran environmental activist and member of the indigenous Lenca, who fought for indigenous rights and environmental justice in the face of state-sponsored violence and forced privitization of natural resources before her murder in March 2016. “Guardiana de los Ríos” centers the voices of Berta, her community (including the organization COPINH, which she co-founded), and those who continue to fight against hydroelectric projects in Honduras.
Jennifer Ávila is a Honduran journalist, artist, and documentary filmmaker. Ávila is the co-founder of Contra Corriente, a multimedia, youth and women-led media platform. She will speak in Bellingham, Washington, on Tuesday, October 16, 2018, at Christ the Servant Lutheran Church (2600 Lakeway Drive).
