Washington, D.C. Premiere Exploring the complexity of oil development within a fragile ecosystem and its effects on the planet as a whole, this film focuses on Ecuador’s unprecedented proposal for fighting global climate change. In exchange for payments from the world community, the country will leave untouched its largest oil reserves. The film takes the viewer to the Yasuní National Park, in the Ecuadorian Amazon, capturing the rainforest’s stunning bio-diversity and revealing the millions of barrels of oil lying beneath the part of the park, known as the ITT Block. Directed and produced by Verónica Moscoso.
