Environmental Crime, Pt. 1 – Giving a voice to the voiceless: Deforestation in the Amazon and the challenge of documentary filmmaking Eutopya Podcasts

In this episode, Lidia and Manju sit down with photographer and journalist Fábio Nascimento for the first instalment of our brand new Environmental Crimes series. Fábio has worked with groups like National Geographic, Greenpeace, The New York Times, and BBC. He recently finished directing and shooting MATA, a documentary that examines the impact of illegal land grabbing on indigenous Brazilians. In this piece, we discuss the nature of environmental crime in Brazil, the problems and processes of activist filmmaking, and the broader challenges (and potential solutions) we face as a society. This episode was produced—across 4 countries and 3 continents—by Lidia Varda, Manju von Rospatt, and Anya Bégué.
