On Sunday 9th of October, Teatro Mungange is hosting a preview of ‘The Letter’; a documentary featuring Chief Dada and Pope Francis made in collaboration with Laudato Si and Off the Fence production company. Joining the event is Chief Dada himself, his companions, and Forest Forces founder Tim Boekhout van Solinge.
Chief Dadá is on a two-week tour across Europe to share his story and vision of a sustainable and just future. Among many things, his agenda includes talking at the Blue Earth Summit and Wildscreen festival in Bristol, and watching the premiere of ‘The Letter’ in the Vatican with Pope Francis. After filming the documentary during the peaks of the pandemic, they are reunited to see the result of their powerful alliance, and advocate loudly for taking action against the planetary crisis.
At Teatro Munganga, watch the preview of ‘The Letter’ and join in the conversation about how developments of illegal deforestation and logging in the Amazon has impacted its inhabitants and ecology with Dr. Tim Boekhout van Solinge and Chief Dadá. Chief of the Noke Koi and Katuquina indigenous people from Gregório River in Brazil, Kamarati, will also be there to perform traditional songs and chants.
We look forward to an inspiring evening full of stories from the forest and to come together for such an important mission – to protect and stand for nature.
