CALL OF THE HEART

In the deep belief that their region is the “Heart of the World”, the leaders of the village (called Mamos) advise that the earth is a living body and if you kill the heart, all other things will die, too. They explain that if humans simply obey the universe’s Original Law, the development of new diseases and a disharmony amongst humans can be avoided. With this film we aim to draw attention to the climate crisis by showing the direct effects currently had on those living most closely to the land as well as the effects to come for all of us. In addition to spreading awareness we also aim to raise money to help the Arhuaco people buy back their rightful land, preserving a critical water source for the Gunchukwa village, and allow the opportunity to reforest the area. To achieve this we have set up a Gofundme for donations and have partnered with Akomplice on a small capsule clothing collection, from which all profits will be donated towards this goal.
