In 2007, Ecuador launched an initiative to leave Amazonian oil reserves in the ground in exchange for financial compensation protecting it’s vital ecosystems and two cloistered indigenous tribes.

In 2007, Ecuador launched an initiative to leave some of its Amazonian oil reserves in the ground in exchange for financial
compensation from the international community-ultimately protecting it’s vital ecosystems and two cloistered indigenous tribes. Fast forward to 2017, Ecuador started drilling in the most pristine part of Yasuni, triggering new waves of protest. The film uncovers
Ecuador’s battle to reconcile its green ambitions with tough economic realities: a dilemma sparking debate about economic development, sustainability and climate change around the world. Contains subtitles. Directed by Ewa Ewart
