About the film: “Four Indigenous leaders embark on an extraordinary trans-continental adventure from the Canadian Boreal forests to deep into the heart of the Amazonian jungle to unite the peoples of North and South America and deepen the meaning of “Climate Justice”. The Condor & The Eagle documentary offers a glimpse into a developing spiritual renaissance as the film’s four protagonists learn from each other’s long legacy of resistance to colonialism and its extractive economy. Their path through the jungle takes them on an unexpectedly challenging and liberating journey, which will forever change their attachment to the Earth and one another.”
Event hosted by: Bellingham Unitarian Fellowship, JUUstice Washington, UU Ministry for Earth, Multi-faith Network for Climate Justice, Mt. Baker Group Sierra Club, and Unitarian Church of Underwood, MN.
