La Selva Tranquila

La foresta tranquilla

Three interwoven stories that provide a local perspective on what it's like to live with the natural patrimony of the Iquitos jungle in the Peruvian Amazon. Katu tells of his attempt to make a living from ecotourism, despite encounters with hunters and loggers; Chepa, who grew up in a shantytown, illegally sells tree sloths, baby monkeys, and turtles to support his family, breaking the laws that represent the only solution to protecting one of the world's most important ecosystems.
