SLO Motion Presents: TRIBES ON THE EDGE - Featuring a Q&A with Director and Producer Céline Cousteau
August 3, 2019 - The Palm Theatre in San Luis Obispo, CA - 7pm

Join us on August 3, 2019, for a night with director and producer Céline Cousteau, as we showcase her film, Tribes on the Edge – an independent documentary by CauseCentric Productions, that explores the timely topics of land threats, health crises, and human rights issues of the Indigenous Peoples of the Vale do Javari, Brazilian Amazon, expanding the view to how this is relevant to our own lives.

Tribes on the Edge has grown into movement driven by a passionate effort to enact tangible impact through campaign initiatives: Action, Communication and Education. More than a narrative of reality in the Amazon, Tribes on the Edge suggests the universal story of our human tribe and how our future is interwoven with each other and with nature. This is a story that invokes the critical importance of respect and care – for land, culture, and humanity. Our survival may depend on it.


Tribes On The Edge

Directed by Céline Cousteau | Run Time: 1 hour 40 mins

Humans and nature are intimately interconnected. Where there is environmental destruction, humans suffer. In the Brazilian Amazon, where there are indigenous communities, there is no deforestation. If they vanish, we lose the guardians of vital ecosystems and thus may lose that ecosystem as a result. More than a film, it has grown into a movement driven by a passionate effort to enact tangible impact in the through Action, Communication and Education (ACE) initiatives. Tribes on the Edge reminds us all that our survival depends on our actions - to support and protect the people and the ecosystems they safeguard for the benefit of us all.
