At the heart of Brazilian agribusiness, indigenous teacher Alenir Aquino fights for her community's right to ancestral lands. On the opposite side of this dispute is the heiress of these lands, Luana Ruiz, a lawyer with strong ties to the Bolsonaro's government.

The materials below were produced to help you with the exhibition. Use the ones you find most suitable and adapt what you need to your needs. They can be used to create invitations and other communication pieces you deem necessary. Check them out!



We know that it can be difficult to start a conversation after a screening of a movie. That's why we've put together some complementary material so that you can be more confident in explaining the topics covered by the film. In it we have organized interesting content to deepen your knowledge of indigenous and Guarani-Kaiowá culture. As well as learning more about the subjects of the film, you'll find triggering questions that can help you start a conversation after the screenings, because the discussions that are generated after the film are the most valuable resources in certain contexts.




If you're an educator, you'll also find lots of links to references as well as a selection of scenes from the movie to comment on and use in the classroom. The most important thing is that you get everyone to be actively attentive and to use the film creatively. 

Download and enjoy!

Laura Faerman

​Laura Faerman is a documentary filmmaker, researcher and curator of audiovisual projects. "Vento na Fronteira" is her ninth film as a director, her first feature film.


In 2014, he accompanied and registered the National Commission for Indigenous Truth, which for the first time investigated the violations of rights committed by the Brazilian State against populations of different ethnicities during the military dictatorship (1964-1985). He traveled around the country recording stories hitherto unknown: forced removals, enslavement, rape, torture, murder, illegal imprisonment, among other violations. It is estimated that more than 8,300 indigenous people were killed during the dictatorship in Brazil.  


Based on this research, he directed and edited, with Marina Weis, the audiovisual series “The Dangerous Memory” (6 episodes of 26 min.), with recordings in dozens of villages, unpublished archival material and testimonies of anthropologists, indigenists, journalists, indigenous leaders and elders who survived the lead years.


She curated the exhibitions “Passion of Memory”, with films and workshop by filmmaker Patrício Guzman (2017); "Game of Truth - Documentaries by Peter Watkins" (2012), the first retrospective of the English filmmaker in Brazil; and "The Cinema of Maya Deren (2009).


He gathered, digitized and made available the production of his father, journalist Marcos Faerman, on a website (2016):


She works as a researcher, editor and director of documentary projects  in "With an eye on the ruralists", an independent media vehicle that monitors Brazilian agribusiness and its social and environmental impacts. His upcoming documentary, “Lossers: The Political and Economic Destroyers of the Planet,” is in pre-production.


Marina Weis

​Marina Weis has a degree in Sociology from the University of São Paulo and a degree in Cinematography from the International School of Cinema and Television in San Antonio de los Baños, Cuba. She was a researcher at USP's Center for Indigenous History and Indigenism and has held more than a dozen audiovisual workshops in the Amazonia, in indigenous communities, in cultural centers on the outskirts of São Paulo, in schools and in refugee camps in Brazil and Germany.

She has directed five short movies, including the award-winning Lilith. As a photographer, producer and editor, she has taken part in dozens of other audiovisual projects. " We Others" (2014) is her first feature film, mixing experimental cinema and documentary. In partnership with Laura Faerman, she photographed and directed the series "The Dangerous Memory" - a series of 6 episodes about the impact of the military dictatorship on Brazil's indigenous peoples. The feature film " Wind Blows the Border" (2022), with the same partnership in direction and editing, is his second feature film, winner of more than 8 awards at festivals around the world.

She currently lives between Berlin and São Paulo and continues to intertwine her filmmaking work with art education and urban permaculture.
