Cine-ONU Celebrates the Closure of the Year of the Forests with the Screening of CHILDREN OF THE AMAZON

To mark the end of the International Year of Forests, CINE-ONU invites you to the screening of CHILDREN OF THE AMAZON on Wednesday, December 14th, 6:30pm at the Goethe Institute Brussels.

A stunning documentary by Denise Zmekhol, CHILDREN OF THE AMAZON follows the Brazilian filmmaker as she travels a modern highway deep into the Amazon in search of the Indigenous Surui and Negarote children she photographed fifteen years ago. Part road movie, part time travel, her journey tells the story of what happened to life in the largest forest on Earth when a road was built straight through its heart. CHILDREN OF THE AMAZON is a production of ITVS, with outreach support fromLPB.

The film will be followed by a Q&A with Director Denise Zmekhol and Chris Vanden Bilcke, Head of UNEP Liasion Office to the European Union.
