“Laberinto Yoéme” is a documentary on the hardships of the Yaqui Tribe of Sonora and their ancestral defense of land and life. Today, the Yaqui are in a decisive battle. Since 2010, Sonora’s Government through the Independence Aqueduct has been illegally transferring millions of cubic meters of water from the Yaqui River, causing a water scarcity for the tribe and endangering their lives. At the same time, their territory has been infested with drugs and violence. In this crisis, the Yaqui have begun political fights and acts of resistance to preserve their lands, their waters and their existence with the hope of finding a way out of this labyrinth. The 2018 Latin American Film Festival brings together films exploring the themes of “Cultural Memory and Environmental Conflicts in Latin America.”
