Berta Cáceres—the environmental activist and champion of her indigenous compatriots in Honduras—was murdered at age 44 by members of a U.S.-trained special forces unit of the Honduran army for her role in blocking the construction of the Agua Zarca Dam.
This week the Hammer will screen Katia Lara’s short documentary BERTA VIVE, followed by a conversation with Made in L.A. 2018 artist Carolina Caycedo, journalist Silvio Carrillo, and UC Berkeley law professor Roxanna Altholz on indigenous environmental activism.
