EP 03: Cure the Spirit
Documentary HD Color | 17 min | Guatemala 2021 | Spanish, Maya Kaq’chikel | Subtitles ENG POR
This is the story of Maggie García. From Guatemala, we present this documentary research that reveals how green capitalism seeks to dispossess the indigenous communities of Lake Atitlan, big companies and the government take advantage of the climate crisis to make business with water. In times of pandemic, ecocide and genocide, indigenous women who defend water and practice our spirituality are living alternatives to the climate crisis.
COP26 is approaching, but the current situation of the climate crisis demonstrates that governments and corporations are unable to solve the biggest challenge of our time because they will always choose economic growth over life.
What if alternatives to the climate crisis already exist? Indigenous Peoples make up 6% of the population and are stewards of 80% of the remaining biodiversity and ecosystems that keep our planet alive. They are the least responsible for carbon emissions but are most affected by the effects of global warming.
In alliance with Culture Hack Labs we create this narrative report that shows the evolution of an emerging narrative where the conversation of the climate crisis and the defense of the territory converge.
