Religions for Peace is pleased to invite you to an in-person film screening of Guardians of the Rainforest, produced by award-winning filmmakers Ms. Lia Beltrami and Ms. Marianna Beltrami, with the support of Religions for Peace, a lead implementing partner of the Interfaith Rainforest Initiative (IRI), a United Nations-led global programme. The event will be held on Wednesday, 20 September from 11:00am – 12:30pm EST at 777 United Nations Plaza, New York, NY 10017.
Guardians of the Rainforest is a documentary supported by multi-religious efforts to highlight the vital work of Indigenous women who are speaking out for the protection of the tropical rainforests in Brazil, the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), and Borneo.
Join us for a film screening followed by an interactive Q&A with the film directors, to witness and learn how faith communities on the ground are uniting to put an end to the exploitation and deforestation of some of the world’s most invaluable sources of life.
