Dr. Ernesto Silva introduces film about Shipibo culture at Atlanta Film Festival

Dr. Ernesto Silva introduced a film about Shipibo culture in Peru at the Hilan Theater as part of the Atlanta Film Festival on April 22nd. Onibo (2017), directed by Julien Mauranne and Victor Guillon, is a French-Peruvian film about two young Shipibos who move to Lima in search for a better future. In light of the recent killing of Shipibo leader Olivia Arévalo Lomas, this is a very relevant documentary to bring to light the struggles of this community.
