A screening of the documentary “Guavira Time”. The documentary is 40 minutes long, in Portuguese and Guarani, with subtitles in Spanish and in English. The film will be screened in person at Cardiff University and also online via Zoom. After the documentary Brazilian participants (including indigenous and non-indigenous participants who took part in the documentary) will offer their personal and community perspective. This will be followed by a Q&A session.
The documentary discusses and problematises the violence suffered by the Guarani-Kaiowa who are the second largest indigenous group in Brazil and the most seriously affected by anti-indigenous violence. At the centre of those controversies, is the encroachment of extractivism and agribusiness farming upon Guarani-Kaiowa areas. The documentary is an important 'more-than-academic' contribution of ongoing partnership between Cardiff University and the Federal University of the Great Dourados since 2017, funded by ESRC, AHRC, the British Academy and the Newton Fund.
