VOICES FOR THE AMAZON
Narrated by Academy Award winners Sissy Spacek and Herbie Hancock

“RIVER OF GOLD,” a documentary film by the Amazon Aid Foundation, is the disturbing account of a clandestine journey into Peru’s Amazon rainforest to uncover the savage unraveling of pristine jungle by illegal small scale gold mining.

Ron Haviv and Donovan Webster, two war journalists, led by Peruvian scientist and activist Enrique Ortiz, bear witness to the apocalyptic destruction in the pursuit of illegally mined gold with consequences on a global scale. What will be the fate of this critical region of priceless biodiversity as these extraordinarily beautiful forests are turned into a hellish wasteland?
