A side-profile headshot of artist Lilophilia against a white background. She has her braided hair up in a high bun and all of her face is in shadow except a strip across her eyes.

We are delighted to be collaborating with ÚNA Festival for this special event exploring ancestral tradition, climate justice and environmental balance at the intersection of film, eco-activism, sound healing performance and visual arts.

Alongside short films from Peru, Ecuador and Chile, Colombian artist Liliana Romero (Lilophilia), Mexican sound performer Ruben Vucubcame, and Zimbabwean-Scottish artist and curator Sekai Machache interact in a space where myth, imagination, spirituality and the voices of those silenced invite audiences to reflect on our relationship to soil, earth, water, identity and memory.

All films are captioned for d/Deaf and hard-of-hearing audiences. Please contact access@takeoneaction.org.uk if you have any questions about access for this event.


Short films:


A still from "The Return". Beneath the shade of a large palm frond, a child stands with one hand against the leaf and another behind his back, gazing out of frame. The frond grows from the broad trunk of a tree behind him. Its bark is grey-brown and dotted with ferns and moss.The Return
(Eriberto Gualinga, Ecuador, 2021, 17 min, Amazonian Kichwa)

A family in the Ecuadorian Amazon is spending lockdown in the relative safety of the jungle. As they reconnect with dormant ancestral knowledge, away from the distractions of modern life, their affinity with nature begins to flourish.


The Roots WeaverA still from "The Roots Weaver". A close up of two hands working on a small object. One hand holds metal pliers, whilst the other holds the end of an earring hook. They are fastening the hook to a small ring made of knotted grass.
(Fernando Saldivia Yáñez, Chile, 2020, 10 min, no dialogue)

A poetic observation of the indigenous Yaghan art of grass- weaving as developed in Chile, The Roots Weaver embeds this intergenerational process into the aural and visual textures that sustain it.


A still from "And That Is How the Rivers Came To Be". An animated scene. A tall figure is shown from below, holding a large bow and two long arrows. They stand against a bright blue sky that has been painted in dynamic strokes that sweep away from the figure.And That Is How The Rivers Came To Be
(Miguel Araoz Cartagena, Canada, USA/Peru, 2019, 3 min, Kukuma)

The enchanting Peruvian legend of a Kukama god comes alive in this animated film about the creation of the vast, winding rivers of the Amazon.

Booking Information

To make our events more accessible, we operate a sliding scale ticket policy (thanks to SQIFF for leading the way) across all our venues and online. Choose what to pay based on your personal circumstances, from £0-10. All we ask is that you are honest with us so that we can continue offering this flexibility to those who need it most. When you pay a higher price for a ticket, you help subsidise a ticket for somebody on a lower income.


Graphic with turquoise background with the white Take One Action logo in the top left corner. White text top-right reads 'Sliding Scale Ticketing' and white text underneath reads 'How much should I pay?; £0-2: I find it difficult to meet everyday costs; £4-6: I can meet everyday costs but sometimes find it stressful to do so; £6-8: I can meet everyday costs; £10: I can comfortably meet my everyday costs and have savings too'
