Scottish Premiere

A mesmerising journey into the heart of Brazil’s Amazon Rainforest, in the footsteps of the Yanomami.

From missionaries to gold miners, the Yanomami people have endured centuries of violence at the hands of white colonisers. Developed in collaboration with the community itself, The Last Forest blends observational footage and dreamlike staged sequences to explore the Yanomami’s creation myths, their relationship to nature, and their ongoing struggle to preserve their natural environment.

Co-scripted by Yanomami shaman Davi Kopenawa, the film unfolds in lush cinematography, multi-layered soundscapes and ethereal musical sections. While exposing the environmental and political threats affecting Indigenous populations in present-day Brazil, The Last Forest is first and foremost an homage to the strength of a community coming together to honour its traditions and stand up for its rights - and its future.

The Last Forest will be followed by a pre-recorded conversation with campaigners and advocates for Indigenous rights.
