Latin Film Night Presents "Ecuador: Rainforest Vs Globalization"

When Rafael Correa, an established economist, entered politics, he was a man on a mission. Elected as Ecuador's President in 2006, he quickly transformed a country with archaic structures into a social, independent, ecological and participative democracy. Ecuadoreans now have genuine reason to believe that the rigid structures of the past are no longer acceptable and that they have a voice.

From the Yasuni Initiative, by which the country would no longer rely upon the exploitation of its natural oil resources, to the analyzing of the IMF debt structure, hear from Correa and other Ecuadorean leaders as they present alternatives regarding their political, ecological and economic status in the global marketplace and how they will put their people and the planet before profits.
