Variety: Rio Film Festival Rebounds With Strong Brazilian Pic Lineup, Including a Surge in Pics on Amazon Rainforest, Indigenous Peoples.

One of the fest’s highlights was the significant number of features about the Amazon Rainforest and Brazilian Indigenous people.

Doc feature “We Are Guardians,” co-helmed by Edivan Guajajara, from the Arariboia native people, and Chelsea Greene and Rob Grobman, both from the U.S., made its Brazilian premiere at Rio Fest. The doc, which has Leonardo DiCaprio as executive producer, is enjoying a strong fest career and is due to open on a streaming service early next year.
