Film Screening "Karuara, People of the River" from Peru's Amazon region
Centre for Social Innovation

Join Cuso International for an evening of inspiration as we present a debut viewing of “Karuara, People of the River” at the Centre for Social Innovation, Spadina in Toronto on May 9, 2024.

Meet Mariluz, a courageous Indigenous woman and her family as they stand against formidable forces to protect their river and the revered Karuara community. Through stunning hand-painted animations, this Peruvian documentary unveils the spiritual realm of the Karuara, offering viewers a profound voyage into their world.

Amidst a world that often commodifies nature, this film serves as a poignant reminder of our intrinsic bond with water, inviting us to rekindle our connection to the natural world.

Before the film, join us for a special Cuso International alumni gathering, where you will meet Miguel Araoz, Mariluz Canaquiri, and Stephanie Boyd - the talented minds behind this cinematic masterpiece.

After the film, stay for a Q&A session and enjoy time for networking and socializing over Peruvian appetizers.
