Tribes on the Edge is a documentary produced by CauseCentric Productions, directed, produced, and co-written by Céline Cousteau. The film explores the timely topics of land threats, health crises, and human rights issues of the indigenous peoples of the Vale do Javari in the Brazilian Amazon, demonstrating that the survival of these communities is critical to the planet’s fight against climate change. This is a story that exemplifies the founding principles of Nature’s Climate Hub as it invokes the critical importance of respect and care – for land, culture, and humanity. Our survival depends on it.
More than a film, Tribes on the Edge has grown into a movement driven by a passionate effort to enact tangible impact through Action, Communication and Education (ACE) initiatives. Cousteau’s presentation of Tribes on the Edge at Nature’s Climate Hub will remind 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.
