Trees Tropiques: An observational immersion in life along the waterways where the sweet water of the Amazon basin mixes with the salty Atlantic Ocean is interrupted by questions about the ethics of including images of deforestation, which could land the protagonist in trouble with the environmental police.The film ruminates on the global ethics of deforestation as we learn of deforestations’ symbiotic relationship with harvesting açai, Brazil’s latest boom crop that has made it into popular energy drinks and onto Oprah’s diet.
Remembering Bagua (2011): This short documentary film examines the conflict that arose in Bagua, Peru in June 2009. Indigenous Awajun and Wampis activists from the Peruvian Amazon protested against new laws created by the Peruvian government that allow international companies to extract oil, gas and minerals from the Amazon without adequately consulting the indigenous people. Violence ensued which left 34 people dead, and over 200 wounded. This film was mostly shot at the Bagua Memorial, which took place in June 2010 in northern Peru. The filmmakers recorded testimonials related to the causes and aftermath of the tragic Bagua conflict.
