We are very proud to present the first Peoples of the Rainforest Film Festival which will take place on 4, 5 and 6 November 2021. On the program, films made by indigenous and non-indigenous filmmakers.
Rainforests are unique and earth’s oldest living ecosystems. They are home to thousand of species of flora and fauna as well as to hundreds of different tribes of indigenous people.
People of the Rainforest Film Festival was created to give a platform to indigenous and non indigenous filmmakers telling the important stories of the rainforests and their people.
During the three days of the festival there will be screenings of films, Q&A with film directors, conversations with activists, representatives of several indigenous people, researchers and specialists.
Part of the tickets sales will be donated to indigenous organizations as well as the Chico Mendes Committee.
Come join us on 4,5 and 6 November 2021 on this beautiful and interesting journey to the land of the people of the rainforest.
“Enjoy this selection of works made by and/or about indigenous people of the Amazone rainforest.”
The film received the Audience Award and the Competition Award at the 2008 South by Southwest Festival, where it had its worldwide premiere. In Brazil, where the film title received a literal translation, it premiered at the 2007 Rio de Janeiro Film Festival. It was also screened at the 32nd São Paulo International Film Festival. It is planned to receive a nationwide release on February 13, 2009.
The film and its song "Forever", written and performed by Bebel Gilberto, daughter of Bossa Nova pioneer João Gilberto, were pre-selected for the Academy Awards for Best Documentary Feature and Best Original Song, respectively.
Com letra de Nando Reis e Carlos Rennó.
Cantada por Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil, Milton Nascimento, Gal Costa, Elza Soares, Camila Pitanga, Daniela Mercury, Maria Bethânia, Céu, Iza, Preta Gil, Arnaldo Antunes, Chico César e outros(as) artistas.

From Brazil originating theater group
From Brazil originating theater group Munganga (pronounced: moen-gang-gaa) is a Brazilian word, derived from Mganga, a tribe in Africa. The priests of this tribe make great and exuberant gestures during their rituals. Their way of communicating consists of expressive faces, grimaces and dancing.
Since its founding in 1987, Teatro Munganga has given the visual language a major role in its performances. By mixing and combining theatre with music, dance and puppetry, the theater group wants to show the poetry of life. The miracle of the everyday. Theatre group Munganga deals with universal themes, in which different cultures and their contrasts form the most important guideline in the projects.
“During our 30-year existence we have create performances with a critical view of society and as artists we are aware of our influence in the world. Our involvement with people regardless of their social class or origin extends beyond the theatre stage. In addition to performing in theaters, we also develop projects for schools, retirement homes, asylum seekers’ centers, psychiatric institutions and other non-conventional stages. In June 2013, we launched ‘Busganga’ (the theater on wheels) and in June 2014 we opened the doors of CASA Munganga; a charming and cozy theatre in the southern part of Amsterdam. Besides presenting the theatre’s own performances, we share a stage with other artists, activists and dreamers. A new phase.”
The theatre group has already made numerous performances. Currently, Teatro Munganga performs with the performance ‘Piet and the brother of the Moon’ in the Busganga. For more information see Bus/Program Busganga.
THE THEATRE ON WHEELS
Our painted bus is decorated like a real theatre: with a stage, a grandstand, light, sound, room for 30 spectators and even a red theater curtain. In this special touring theater, Teatro Munganga presents performances for various target groups.
The performance ‘Piet and the brother of the moon’ (3+) will be performed in 2015/2016 in the Busganga.
A visual youth theatre performance with dolls, music and an actor, but without words. The story is about Piet the clown and his goal to let people enjoy. One night the weather changes and suddenly something falls into Piet’s suitcase. This sudden event makes him decide to go on a trip. He and his suitcase go together to find the land that will bring them closer to the moon; a country that is not on the map. Piet does not know the way, luckily the fish, birds and many other animals help him find the way.
