Filmmaker, environmentalist and National Aquarium board member Céline Cousteau will share her new documentary, "Tribes on the Edge," about the Vale do Javari in the Brazilian Amazon. More than a narrative of tribal reality in the Amazon, the film suggests the universal story of our human tribe and how our future is interwoven with each other and with nature.

Accompanying her for this film screening will be Beto Marubo, a Márubo indigenous person from the Vale do Javari. Beto represents his people and speaks on behalf of the uncontacted tribes through national and international platforms.

The granddaughter of legendary ocean explorer Jacques Cousteau, Céline is a world traveler and renowned adventurer in her own right. The founder of the nonprofit CauseCentric Productions, she compellingly tells the stories of the world's ecosystems, species and people, helping audiences around the globe connect with the marine world through film and research.
