Berta Vive

A powerful documentary about the work of Berta Caceres, an environmental activist from Honduras. Berta’s pursuit of environmental justice continues after her death. On March 2nd, 2016 news of Berta Caceres’ murder shook the world. The woman whose fight defending Lenca territories brought her to lead COPINH, the Council of Popular and Indigenous Organizations of Honduras. The defense against the construction of a dam at the Gualcarque River, sacred to the Lenca indigenous communities, is the preface to a story in which we follow Miriam Miranda, leader of the Garífuna Afro-descendant people, as well as a friend and comrade of Berta. Both women unified in a struggle for environmental justice in a country that is being sold to transnational capital.
