The Tribes On The Edge documentary will serve as a catalyst for advocacy by jump-starting dialogue through festival screenings, lectures, press opportunities, private and public events, and press. These dialogues can spur a shift in understanding the relevancy of this story in our own lives around the world.
In fall 2016, Céline and her team established more than 15 Tribes on the Edge pre-launch events across eight countries in four months. One partner press event created the potential for more than 33 million print impressions and over 171 million digital unique monthly views. With Tribes on the Edge more than 90% completed, 2018 has propelled the advocacy campaign into action.
Following the United Nations Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues in April 2018, Céline and Beto Marúbo from the Vale do Javari held a screening event at the Explorer’s Club in New York City. Following the viewing of selected scenes from the upcoming film, Céline and Beto were joined by Scott Wallace, author of “The Unconquered”, a story set in the very same region. In May, an unfinished cut of Tribes On The Edge screened at the Brazil International Film Festival. That same weekend, Céline traveled to São Paulo Brazil to present selected clips from the film and at the Nexus Brazil Summit.
Céline intends to continue holding private, public and festival screenings of Tribes On The Edge with companion viewing discussions and an action guide for those who will eventually stream or download this at home or in academic institutions. We strive to inspire and call to action a united front of cinefiles, humanitarians and environmentalists alike.
Stay tuned for screenings.
