THE CONDOR & THE EAGLE

Feature Documentary

Dir. Clement & Sophie Guerra

Produced by Andre Singer, Giancarlo Canavesio, Douglas Blush

 

Never-before-seen images expose the global rise of land and water protectors across the Americas. Midst of the burning of the Amazon, the mega-fires in Australia, and the global climate strikes, this award-winning documentary documents the ongoing collective climate awakening and the imperative of urgent change. Facing this overwhelming current political climate, a great many people are looking for answers that are adapted to today’s urgency. As world climate scientists predict unprecedented global catastrophe, “The Condor & The Eagle” features Indigenous women leaders deploying unparalleled global response.

 

ABOUT THE DIRECTORS

Back in 2014 Clément Guerra, French, a 32-year-old international marketing manager working in London and his German wife Sophie, studying pharmacy, could have settled down to a comfortable middle class life. But instead they took their savings, flew across the ocean and arrived in New York. Fast forward to 2020, their film follows Indigenous American women, from the Ecuadorian Amazon to the Tar Sands protests in Alberta, Canada, via the Texas oil fields, in their fight to preserve the livelihoods and culture of Indigenous communities and to protect the earth from climate change.
