Amazon Voices: In the Heart of Native Resistance

Lucile Alemany & Lamia Chraibi | Ecuador – France | 2015 | 52 ‘

In Amazonia, Ecuador, Indigenous communities in a region devastated by Chevron Texaco try to make their voices heard to denounce the damage done by oil extraction. How does one define development? What is a “good-living” society? What solutions can be found in education? In Sarayaku, Yasuni and Lago Agrio, Indigenous communities denounce the social, cultural, environmental and human damage caused by oil extraction and propose profoundly different ways of thinking.This film is shown partly in Spanish and Quechua with English subtitles.

There will be an optional discussion after the film. Everyone welcome. Films are free but donations welcome. Conserver House is wheelchair accessible but the washrooms are up the stairs.
