Béture Collective: Kayapó Filmmaking in the Amazon
With Simone Giovine and Bepkadjoiti Kayapó

Simone Giovine (Filmmaker and co-founder of the Kayapó Beture Filmmaking Collective) and Bepkadjoiti Kayapó (filmmaker part of Kokojagoti Collective and Beture Collective) will talk about the work of the Béture Collective - a group of indigenous Kayapó-Mẽbêngôkre Filmmakers that work with the nongovernmental organization the Protected Forest Association. The nucleus of the Béture Collective, made up of 15 filmmakers from different villages, is a movement that is steadily growing with more and more young people from different communities involved. This intimate, roundtable discussion will provide students and faculty with a chance to speak with Indigenous filmmakers about their work.
