Women of Earth
Mayara Boaretto, Isadora Carneiro, Katia Lund, 71 minutes, Brazil
Mayara grew up in Sao Paulo, the largest city in Brazil and Latin America. She was a teenager surrounded by millions of people, technology, and everything the modern world could offer. But she still felt empty. In search of Brazil’s roots, she traveled to indigenous, quilombola (communities founded in 19th century by runaway slaves), and rural communities. She was searching for women who could answer her questions. She found them. She calls them, WOMEN OF EARTH.
