The Princeton Environmental Film Festival 2018 (PEFF) awarded the Beyond Fordlândia documentary its seventh prize, entitled the Emerging Filmmakers Award. The screening happened on April 10th and received a public eager for information and a true panorama of the contemporary Amazon, which Marcos Colón's pioneering production successfully delivers.
“It is very important to see that the film brings the Amazonian theme to a growing number of spaces, especially at such respected institutions and festivals, like the PEFF. We have just received an award in Japan and we have been to the World Water Forum. I am glad to see that the mission of divulging and drawing attention to Ford's legacy and the impact of agribusiness on the Amazon is being recognized”, reported the director.
Beyond Fordlândia was part of the PEFF program with 26 other productions, screened on the campus of Princeton University, at the Princeton Garden Theatre and the Hopewell Theatre, from April 9th to 15th.
