Río de Oro

Narrado por los ganadores del Premio de la Academia, Sissy Spacek y Herbie Hancock

RÍO DE ORO es un inquietante relato sobre un viaje clandestino a la selva amazónica del Perú en el que se resalta la destrucción de la selva virgen. Ron Haviv y Donovan Webster, dos periodistas de guerra, dirigidos por el peruano Enrique Ortiz, son testigos de la destrucción apocalíptica impulsada por la extracción ilegal de oro, con consecuencias globales. Salta cuatro años al futuro durante una intervención masiva del gobierno peruano. ¿Cuál será el destino de esta región crítica, con una biodiversidad inestimable, a medida que estos bosques extraordinariamente hermosos son convertidos en un baldío infernal?

Fotos by Ron Haviv, VII Agency. 2010.
