When Two Worlds Collide

About the Film

Telling an epic story filmed over eight years, this Sundance Film Festival Special Jury Award winner reveals the battle waged between indigenous Amazonian leaders, resolute in protecting their land, and Peru's president, eager to develop his nation through the exploitation of its natural resources—no matter the cost. Once President Alan García modifies laws that had previously safeguarded Peru’s Amazon rainforests, the stage is set for foreign companies to invest in logging and mineral exploration. The indigenous community, led by Alberto Pizango, responds in a protest that escalates to take on national and, eventually, global significance.
