Join us for an exclusive fundraiser and screening of the documentary film Ome, co-produced by Fort Collins not-for-profit organization Village Earth and winner of the Queens International Film Festival. Filmed in the heart of the Ecuadorian Amazon in the Yasuni biosphere, “OME: Tales From a Vanishing Homeland” offers incredible access to the unique and ancient way of life of the Huaorani, one of Ecuador’s most isolated indigenous groups. OME explores the intricacies of the Huaorani way of life, highlighting their connection to land and family, while raising questions about their future survival as oil companies encroach upon Ome, their homeland. OME has won multiple awards and was funded by the Princess Grace Foundation-USA and the Hispanic Scholarship fund. The filmaker, Raul Paz Pastrana will be available to answer questions after the screening.
