Film Synopsis: The Last Forest

Director: Luiz Bolognesi | Countries of production: Brazil | Year: 2021 | Length: 76 min
Age: 12+ years

A mesmerising journey into the heart of Brazil’s Amazonian forest, in the footsteps of the Yanomami.

From missionaries to gold miners, the Yanomami people have endured centuries of violence at the hands of white colonisers. Developed in collaboration with the community itself, The Last Forest blends observational footage and dreamlike staged sequences to explore the Yanomami’s creation myths, their relationship to nature, and their ongoing struggle to preserve their natural environment.

Co-scripted by Yanomami shaman Davi Kopenawa, the film unfolds in lush cinematography, multi-layered soundscapes and ethereal musical sections. While exposing the environmental and political threats affecting Indigenous populations in present-day Brazil, The Last Forest is first and foremost a homage to the strength of a community coming together to honour its traditions and stand up for its rights – and its future.

Content notes: References to violent assault, racism and attempted genocide.




Beyond the Screen

The film will be screened with a short film (Sky Aelans) and followed by a pre-recorded conversation with campaigners and advocates for Indigenous rights.

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.
