Join International Rivers, Amazon Watch and Cultures of Resistance for the premier screening of "Belo Monte: After the Flood."
"Belo Monte: After the Flood" is a new film directed by award-winning environmental documentarian Todd Southgate, and produced with International Rivers, Amazon Watch and Cultures of Resistance. The film explores the history and consequences of one of the world's most controversial dam projects, built on the Xingu River in the heart of the Brazilian Amazon. Todd has documented the conflicts surrounding the Belo Monte Hydroelectric project over the course of seven years. Through interviews with indigenous leaders, activists and local residents, the documentary illustrates how this multi-billion dollar mega-project has left a disastrous legacy of broken promises and socio-environmental damage, and shattered livelihoods among local communities of the Xingu.
