João Salaviza, Renée NAder Messora – Portugal, Brazil 2023 – 124 + 14 minutes – spoken language: Portugese, with English subtitles

Through her child’s eyes, Patpro will go through three periods of the history of her indigenous people, in the heart of the Brazilian forest. Tirelessly persecuted, but guided by their ancestral rites, their love of nature and their fight to preserve their freedom, the Krahô never stop inventing new forms of resistance.

The Buriti Flower is a pressing film about the Krahô people of Brazil, fighting for their existence and that of the Amazon, which was rightfully awarded at Cannes for the way it was made in close collaboration with its ensemble of non-actors. A lyrical blend of documentary and fiction, culminating in massive Indigenous demonstrations in Brasília. It fuses past and present, systemic expulsion and defiance.

This film is preceded by a film from our Eco Shorts competition: Wild Summon by Karni Arieli, Saul Freed – United Kingdom 2023 – 14 minutes
Confrontational spin on the natural history documentary about the dramatic life cycle of the wild salmon, depicted as a woman.

This month Movie W shows films from the Sprouts Film Festival Program on four Wednesday evenings.
About Sprouts Film Festival: In times of a glitching world, with weather extremes and inhumane conflicts intensifying, it can be tempting to avert your gaze. Instead, Sprouts wants to make the cinema a site for peaceful protest by showing newly released ecocinema and socially critical debut films. All selected features and shorts are fiction, because it is our belief that through the power of
imagination we can alter our behaviour for the better and rethink our relationship with the more-than-human world. We are here to make you wonder, to inform, to spark resistance and to nurture fresh talent.
