In Production

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

Synopsis

In Sarayaku, Yasuni and Lago Agrio—a region devastated by the Chevron Texaco corporation—, several indigenous communities are still trying to make their voices heard. Denouncing the social, cultural, environmental and human damage caused by oil extraction, they propose profoundly different ways of thinking. How does one define development? What is a good-living society? What solutions can be found in education? 

Get to know those who resist—and those who propose and create new ways to live in society.
