A film by Sabrina McCormick and Soopum Sohn

and Gretchen Mol
(USA, 2019, 92 min. NR)
Kamodjara and her father, Cristiano, are members of an indigenous tribe that resides on an Amazonian reservation. When they leave their reservation to protest a dam that will displace their people, Kamodjara is separated from her family and kidnapped by traffickers. Roberto, an indigenous agency bureaucrat overseeing a report that could change everything, is under pressure to support dam construction. Thomas, an American investor in the dam, makes his way to Brazil to sway Roberto’s opinion.
Sequestrada tells the story of how these three lives intertwine in front of a backdrop of geopolitics and environmental disaster.
