9th Cinema Planeta palmares

Cinema Planeta 2017 has been held in Cuernavaca, Mexico, from May 2nd up to May 7th.

“Last year, 2016, we faced great challenges such as droughts, unusual storms, rising seas and oceans, and so on, that we, as humanity, have to assume together. Millions of people were displaced by events related to the climate, it is urgent to take actions that mitigate and reverse the effects of global warming.
