Director Marco Bechis developed an authentic screenplay along with the Guarani-Kaiowà, casting leader Ambrósio Vilhalva as the clan leader in the film. Vilhalva was tragically murdered in December after decades of campaigning for his tribe’s right to live on their ancestral land. The film follows this theme.
The Berlinale is screening Birdwatchers in an effort to preserve the memory of Vilhalva's life and his people's struggle to retain their home and self-determination.
