Aruanas (Episodes 1 and 5)

by Estela Renner

In Brazil, three childhood friends set up Aruana, an NGO that investigates the activities of a mining company in the Amazon forest. Little by little, they reveal large-scale environmental crimes, all the while receiving threats. This series, produced by Globo TV, has been backed by 20 international organizations such as WWF and Greenpeace to alert the general public to the tragedy of the Amazon in the Bolsonaro era, but also to bring attention to the women who are trying to defend it.
