Amazonia Lot 1AB

Director:
Nicole Karsin
Producers:
Nicole Karsin, Lyn Goldfarb

Dark secrets of poisoned waters in the remote Peruvian Amazon are revealed in this documentary political thriller when indigenous communities take on Big Oil in California Federal Court. While decades of unconscionable extraction practices wreak havoc, visionary leader Apu Tomas Maynas spearheads the non-violent defense of five Achuar communities to safeguard their territory and very survival. On Lot 1AB, the Achuar’s ancestral rainforest that became one of Peru’s largest oilfields, the power of multinational corporations colluding with governments is pitted against the rising voices of native peoples.
