In this tense and immersive Sundance award-winner, audiences are taken directly into the line of fire between powerful, opposing Peruvian leaders who will stop at nothing to keep their respective goals intact. On the one side is President Alan Garcia, who, eager to enter the world stage, begins aggressively extracting oil, minerals, and gas from untouched indigenous Amazonian land. He is quickly met with fierce opposition from indigenous leader Alberto Pizango, whose impassioned speeches against Garcia's destructive actions prove a powerful rallying cry to throngs of his supporters. When Garcia continues to ignore their pleas, a tense war of words erupts into deadly violence.

“Critic's Pick! A stellar doc...devastating...the rawest vision of capitalism run amok. Epochal moments on the screen.” - Village Voice

“Effectively clarifies complex social and political issues. (The filmmakers) undertake an in-depth investigation of these conflicts in the Peruvian Amazon with their first documentary feature... Earnest, direct and sometimes surprisingly dramatic. Shooting the film over eight years, (they) gained an entree to Peru's indigenous communities. Their proximity to [Alberto Pizango] this humble and charismatic leader provides an insider's perspective on the development of the indigenous protest campaign.” - The Hollywood Reporter
