SOPHIE & CLEMENT GUERRA

Back in 2014 Clément Guerra, French, a 32-year-old international marketing manager working in London and his German wife Sophie, studying pharmacy, could have settled down to a comfortable middle class life. But instead they took their savings, flew across the ocean and arrived in New York. Fast forward to 2020, their film follows Indigenous American women, from the Ecuadorian Amazon to the Tar Sands protests in Alberta, Canada, via the Texas oil fields, in their fight to preserve the livelihoods and culture of Indigenous communities and to protect the earth from climate change.
