'Sentinels' tells the story of a group of young Colombians whose case against deforestation resulted in legal rights being granted to protect the Amazon rainforest.
Whilst they were victorious in court, the consequences of the judgement were severe for subsistence farming communities who lived in the Amazon.
The film will be introduced by Mark Knightley, Actor and Theatre Maker, Crowded Room, and the panel will be Chaired by Dr Emily Barritt, Senior Lecturer in Environmental Law and Co-Director of Transnational Law Institute at King’s.
