Synopsis: Uýra: A Retomada da Floresta (2022)

Uýra, a transgender indigenous artist, travels through the Amazon forest on a journey of self-discovery.  Using the art of performance and ancestral messages, Uýra teaches indigenous youth to confront structural racism and transphobia in Brazil.

Uýra – The Rising Forest is an artistically magical film on urgent topics that connect humanity to nature itself. The film portrays community formation among indigenous transgender and nonbinary people who are in touch with nature and understand what climate justice stands for: opposing racism, fighting transphobia, protecting our ecosystem, and much more. The film won the Audience Award for Best Documentary at this year’s Frameline, the San Francisco International LGBTQ+ Film Festival.
