Step inside a tense and deeply controversial battle between Peruvian leaders who will stop at nothing to extract natural resources from the Amazon, and Indigenous protectors who return the fight in full force to protect their homes and fragile ecosystem. As the Peruvian government passes new legislation that opens the rainforests to destruction, famed Indigenous leader Alberto Pizango makes an impassioned plea to stop the extraction of oil, minerals and gas from untouched Amazonian land. Brewing tensions spark one of the largest Indigenous protests in Peruvian history, and despite no involvement, Pizango is exiled, accused of inciting violence. With an unflinching camera, this immersive tour de force drops us in the middle of two colliding worlds. With guilty parties on both sides, tragedy and destruction tear paradise apart. Heather Haynes
