WHEN TWO WORLDS COLLIDE

WHEN TWO WORLDS COLLIDE brings audiences into the line of fire between two powerful, opposing Peruvian factions. On the one side is the Peruvian government and President Alan Garcia, who begins aggressively extracting oil, minerals, and gas from untouched indigenous Amazonian land. He is 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.

EVERY DROP COUNTS

For most, drought is something seen in media, creating an emotional distance from the people, animals and landscapes affected by it. This film is an attempt to help us all understand our impact.
