Pe ataju jumali/Hot Air (Ar Quente) is an experimental, magical, performative storytelling by the forest creatures of the Global South of their PERFORMAGIC ACTIVATIONS that reveal the face of the carbon credit system of the global north that purports to protect forests. In the film, the forest creatures reveal this great farce and invite everyone into a great cosmic spiral in which environmental justice, indigenous knowledge, and lives are centered. “Abya Yala” is the Indigenous Kuna name for the continent known as America. Abya Yala means flourishing land.
