Different experiences of women defending health, land and survival allow us to reflect and identify the strong link between gender and the ecosystem, women and environmentalism, feminism and ecology.
The goal of this project is to analyze these bonds in different cinematographic productions and Latin American ecofeminism.

Mujeres Audiovisuales – MUA
MUA is a civil association that gathers a vast network of working women (cis and trans women, lesbians and non-binary people) taking part in the production and making of audiovisual content for cinema, TV and new platforms in Argentina, as well as training on the field. It aims at promoting gender equality within and outside audiovisual media, generating actions to protect it and transforming discourses and practices that perpetuate stigmatizing gender stereotypes.
