This documentary is about oil extraction in Ecuador, especially the effects on the Cofan Tribe.
From 1972 to 1992, oil companies dumped toxic wastewater and crude oil into the Amazon River. The amount dumped was 85 times the amount released into the Gulf waters by the Deepwater Horizon spill.
One of the tribal members featured in the film, Hugo Lucitante, will be present at the screenings and will answer questions afterwards.
This is a fundraiser for conservation efforts in the Cofan territory.
