Thea LaGrou, of Films for the Planet, invites you to join her during Now What?! for a series of small group conversations inspired by this immersive learning journey to Pernambucu, Brazil. These will be scheduled on a group by group basis, as interest develops.
The Xukuru Story is a scenic visual narrative which immerses virtual travelers in a rustic Brazilian landscape as they learn how indigenous communities must fight against pervasive commercial interests for their rights, land, and livelihood. Digital installations include a vibrant music video of The Tore – a sacred cultural celebration – visually documented for the very first time.
This genre of digital storytelling combines interactive media with long-form journalism to create a unique immersive experience. The collective quest for viewers includes contemplation and the data harvesting of solutions for indigenous social and environmental challenges.
