Amazonia For Sale
(The Awajún people and their struggle to protect their ancestral territory)

Documentary - 36 min.
Peru - 2009
Languages: Spanish - Awajun
Subtitles: English

The Awajun people have inhabited the Amazon rainforest since time immemorial, living in harmony with - and respectful of - nature. This ecological balance is now being threatened by a growing interest on the part of the Peruvian government and national and international companies in indiscriminately exploiting the area’s mineral, timber and oil resources.
As a result of this plan, promoted by the state in the name of progress and economic development, the original inhabitants of these lands are now threatened by pollution, illness and desertification.
This documentary tells the story of the Awajun people’s resistance and struggle for their dignity and territory, both now and in the future, seeking to avoid the tragic experience to which many of Latin America’s native peoples have already succumbed.
