Keeping with Matilha Cultural’s philosophy of inviting debate on controversial subjects, this year’s Setembro Verde (Green September) festival is no different. Entitled ‘Resistência Indígena’ (Indigenous Resistance), the thematic collection of workshops, exhibitions, lectures and films examines the struggle of the Brazilian Indians.

This, the fifth edition of the multimedia event, features a screening of the 2012 film Belo Monte: Anúncio de uma Guerra (28 September, 8pm) – a Brazilian documentary about the conflict surrounding the planned construction of a hydroelectric plant on Amazônia’s Xingu river, and the plight of the local tribes who have declared war against a government they believe threatens their way of life. (The film can also be watched in its entirety online at belomonteofilme.org.)

Another highlight of the film schedule, Muito Além do Peso (22 and 24 September, 8pm; 25 September, 3pm), a documentary from 2012, explores the factors responsible for Brazil’s childhood obesity problem, which affects 33 per cent of the nation’s youth.
