After the Flood: A Film Screening and Discussion

  • Walnut Creek Public Library (map)

Join author and journalist Chris Feliciano Arnold for a screening of Todd Southgate’s award-winning documentary, Belo Monte: After the Flood, followed by a discussion of the past, present and future of the Amazon rain forest. Chris has spent years reporting from the Amazon rain forest, mapping the human territory of one of the world's last great frontiers—and a critical battleground for human rights and the future of our planet. Nowhere in the Amazon is that battle more fierce than along the Xingu River, site of the enormous Belo Monte hydroelectric dam project, which has displaced tens of thousands of indigenous people and thrown the rainforest ecosystem into disarray.
