Amazonia Lot 1AB
(Currently in production)
Dark secrets of poisoned waters in the remote Peruvian Amazon are revealed in this documentary political thriller when indigenous communities take on Big Oil in California Federal Court. While decades of unconscionable extraction practices wreak havoc, visionary leader Apu Tomas Maynas spearheads the non-violent actions of five Achuar communities to defend their territory and very survival. On Lot 1AB, the Achuar's ancestral rainforest that became one of Peru's largest oil fields, the power of multinational corporations in collusion with sovereign nations is pitted against the rising voices of native peoples.
