“Goodbye to the Jungle”
Urban defiance and Indigenous resilience collide in a groundbreaking dance video.A triumph over oppression and environmental threats, echoing a historic exorcism of Indigenous lands from exploitation.
In September 2023, Ecuador, the director's hometown, enacted a groundbreaking law after enduring decades of violation by oil companies. This legislation marked the first-ever decisive step to vote out drilling projects from the Yasuni National Park in the Amazon forest, safeguarding the ancestral lands of Indigenous communities. The video artfully combines a narrative of personal identity and societal challenges with a celebration of resilience and triumph over environmental threats. The protagonist performance becomes a powerful act of healing and exorcism against the backdrop of historical violations.
