FILM SCREENING: The Wind Blows the Border

The Wind Blows the Border (Vento na Frontera), Brazil (2022), is a documentary film from directors Marina Weis and Laura Faerman. In the territories where Brazil shares its border with Paraguay, the film narrates the struggle of the Guarani-Kaiowá people for their lands against aggressive land grabbing by Brazilian agribusiness. The documentary follows the lives of two very different women, representatives of two opposing worlds: Guarani-Kaiowá community leader Alenir Aquino Ximenes and Luana Ruiz Silva, a wealthy lawyer with farm business interests in the land.
