DAUGHTERS OF THE FOREST tells the uplifting story of a small group of girls in one of the most remote forests left on earth who attend a radical high school where they learn to protect the threatened forest and forge a better future for themselves.
Set in the Mbaracayú Reserve in rural Paraguay, this documentary offers a glimpse into the Mbaracayú Forest Girls’ School, a place where 150 girls are becoming some of the most financially literate young people in South America – not just because they learn economics along with all of the other traditional subjects, but because they are putting what they learn into practice.
Filmed over the course of five years, we follow the girls from their homes in indigenous villages through the year after their graduation.
