About the Film

LA LUCHA SIGUE is a feature-length documentary that combines breathtaking cinematography with intimate access and creative storytelling while following COPINH and OFRANEH, two Indigenous and Black organizations fighting for justice in Honduras.

The Council of Popular and Indigenous Organizations of Honduras (COPINH), co-founded by assassinated leader Berta Cáceres, works with the indigenous Lenca peoples of the mountains of the interior of Honduras. The Black Fraternal Organization of Honduras (OFRANEH) is the social movement of Blacks in Honduras led by Miriam Miranda.

Together, these groups maintain the front lines of resistance to the US-backed military dictatorship of Juan Orlando Hernandez as they strive to dismantle the interlocking systems of capitalism, colonialism, patriarchy and racism.
