AFV at the Museum of Modern Art in Rio de Janeiro

On Tuesday, February 22 at 6pm, AFV organized a special screening of the film "Raoni" (1977) at the Cinematheque of the Museum of Modern Art in Rio de Janeiro.

Dozens of people, including well-known personalities, took part in the event and discovered the movie that made Raoni Metuktyre famous. Photographs of indigenous peoples from around the world, on loan from the Summerhall Museum (Edinburgh, Scotland), were exhibited on this occasion.

The screening shed light on the current debates on the illegal exploitation of indigenous lands. It was also an opportunity to promote AFV’s actions, including its contribution to the future Aritana Institute, whose construction is planned for the summer 2022 in the Xingu Indigenous Territory (TIX). On this occasion, partners such as the Ambassador of Luxembourg, the Deputy Consul General of Belgium in Brazil and doctors from the Oswaldo Cruz Foundation met AFV’s Honorary President and the director of Tryptique, the agency in charge of the architecture of the Institute, based in São Paulo.
