Join us for this online screening of The Cloud Forest. We are showing this film as part of Take One Action Film Festivals’ Local Initiative. The film is Spanish language with English subtitles. We will follow the film with a panel discussion including people who are involved with cooperative movements.
One of Mexico’s most remarkable ecosystems, the cloud forest, is under threat as coffee plantations, cattle grazing and an increase in human population all take their toll. In response, the people of a small town in Veracruz take it upon themselves to “be the change” and protect this unique habitat. Building their own homes, schools and farms, they set out to restructure their entire culture, from the food they grow to their children’s education, radically redefining their relationship with nature – and each other – along the way.
With birdsong, the sound of water flowing and the wind as its only musical soundtrack, this gentle, contemplative documentary offers an intimate and inspiring portrait of community resilience.
Please note this film contains one scene of animal slaughter
