Samara Shows Relationship Between Man and Environment in Documentary Festival

Esta publicación también está disponible en: Español

Documentaries show realities, address social issues and at the same time, take advantage of the art of photography. They also transmit messages, and that’s just what Samara wants: to talk about the environment.


From September 7th to the 11th, this district will hold the Documentary Expo: Photographers of the Environment, which will present four projects that reflect the relationship between man and nature. The functions will start at 7:30 p.m., and will be based in the Natural Center.


“All of the documentaries that are going to be presented have extraordinary photography and try to respect environmental awareness. The people of Samara will be able to see what is happening in the world, in relation to the environment,” commented Diego.
