About the film
Filmed in the verdant jungles of the Amazon (Ecuador and Peru), the brightly colored cultures of the Pan American First Nations communities (Vancouver, Alberta) and the United States Indian tribes (Oklahoma), viewers glimpse extraordinary beauty in the places, faces and regalia of traditional people.
The Indigenous heartfelt pursuit for self- discovery, self- reclamation, and a way of life, is chronicled as they build alliances around the world (in Peru, Ecuador, Paris, Vancouver, Alberta, Washington, New York, etc.) because to them a crime against Mother Earth is a crime against humanity.
The Condor & The Eagle follows the protagonists as they develop a resistance strategy that matches the level of their opponents – taking their effort to South America, Europe and beyond. Their task is to make local battles an International concern and finally expose criminal corporations responsible for serious crimes. The film promotes an intercultural dialogue by showing how non-Indigenous and Indigenous people come together.
About the series
Athena Cinema, University Libraries and Environmental Studies Program present the 8th annual Sustainability Film Series. For the first time ever, the series will be presented virtually.
In keeping with all previous series, each film will be followed by a panel discussion featuring faculty members, students and community members.
Please join us for a conversation following these beautiful, thought-provoking and timely films.
“These young people are saying we all have a right to know what is in the air we breathe, in the water we drink, and the food we eat. It is our responsibility to leave this planet cleaner and greener. That must be our legacy.”
— Representative John Lewis on youth climate activists, September 2019
The fall screenings highlight new releases and classic films that explore diverse topics with the central theme of racial and social justice. We choose films that engage and challenge the audience to integrate the information from these stories into their everyday life, as well as delve into solutions. Through the series we aim to bring together students, faculty and regional community members. The program recognizes the strength of this integration, coming together and learning from each other.
The series is possible thanks to the support of: Voinovich School of Leadership and Public Affairs, OHIO Honors Program, Honors Tutorial College, Cutler Scholars, Climate Ambassadors, Office of Sustainability, Southeast Ohio Public Energy Council, Center for Campus & Community Engagement, University College, and others.
