Isola Edipo

On the occasion of the 80th Venice International Film Festival, Isola Edipo presented, in collaboration with Giornate degli Autori and the Fondation Cartier, the event “Eyes of the Forest”, a day dedicated to first Yanomami filmmaker Morzaniel Ɨramari and the Yanomami indigenous cinema in Brazil.

Leading up to the 2024 Venice Biennale, an edition that will focus on artists who are themselves foreign, diasporic and refugees, moving from the South to the North of the world, the aim of this year's initiative is to highlight the direct and intimate vision of filmmakers from the Yanomami community, one of the best-known indigenous populations of the Amazon, and their growing importance within the international cinema scene. A political act that gives back to the forest its eyes, its bodies and its voices to raise awareness of the current situation of the Yanomami and the urgent need to protect their environment and their way of life.
