Cannes 2018: Cast, crew members of Brazilian film hold up placards to protest against 'genocide' of native people
The cast and crew of Brazilian film The Dead and the Other, that was screened at Cannes, displayed signs calling for the protection of indigenous lands.
Cast and crew members of the Brazilian film The Dead and the Other held up placards on the Cannes Film Festival red carpet on Wednesday to protest what they called "the genocide" of indigenous people in Brazil.
The movie is based on the filmmakers' experience living for nearly a year in a village of Kraho people in north Brazil. It is playing in the Un Certain Regard section at Cannes.
Co-directors Joao Salaviza and Renee Nader Messora joined actor Ihjac Kraho in displaying the signs calling for the protection of indigenous lands. They were attending the premiere of Dogman.
Brazilian politicians last year changed how land is to be demarcated for 900,000 aboriginal people. Activists maintain that without more protection, indigenous groups are being pushed off their land in violent disputes.
