The documentary Guardians of the Forest opens with a shot of a long fence lined with pieces of meat. The meaning of this becomes clear over the course of the film, made by two members of the Guardians of the Forest. This group has taken on the perilous work of patrolling the Indigenous lands of Caru, where they encounter illegal livestock grazing, logging operations, and land grabs. As their territorial demarcations are not enforced by the government, Indigenous assemblies negotiate these ongoing conflicts.
