About the film: “When so many of us feel isolated and helpless, The Condor & The Eagle brings us together in these times of crisis – reminding us of our deep interconnectedness with the Earth and one another. Never-before-seen images expose the global rise of land and water protectors across the Americas. Midst of the burning of the Amazon, the mega-fires in Australia, and the global climate strikes, this award-winning documentary documents the ongoing collective climate awakening and the imperative of urgent change. As world climate scientists predict unprecedented global catastrophe, The Condor & The Eagle features Indigenous women leaders deploying unparalleled global response. Facing this overwhelming current political climate, a great many people are looking for answers that are adapted to today’s urgency.
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 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.”
