Indigenous Movie Night

This Friday, Paradiso Ubud is hosting their first monthly indigenous film night in 2020 with a special screening of “Standing On Sacred Ground: Profit and Loss,” a documentary on indigenous communities around the world as they resist threats to their sacred sites. Prior to the screening, there will be a short documentary on a tribal gathering scheduled to take place in Panama in late February, presented by a member of the organizing team of the event.
