In "Seeds of Resistance," Pablo Albarenga and Francesc Badia I Dalmases document the issues young indigenous leaders of the Brazilian Amazon face through a series of stories and photo essays. Their project sheds light on issues related to sexual violence, LGBTQ+ rights, illegal extraction and rampant pollution from outside development forces through the perspective of indigenous land defenders. The project highlights the strength these young men and women have as they continue defending their land in the face of violence and exploitation.
