When Two Worlds Collide

Quando due mondi si scontrano

Peruvian President Alan Garcia (in office from 2006 to 2011), eager to enter the world stage, began aggressively extracting oil, minerals, and gas from untouched indigenous Amazonian land. This was quickly met with fierce opposition from the indigenous people living in the Amazon jungle, led by Alberto Pizango, whose impassioned speeches against Garcia's destructive actions become a rallying cry: a tense war of words erupts into deadly violence between both sides.A meeting with the director, Mathew Orzel, will be held after the showing.
