Where do you draw the line?
A documentary about an indigenous community fighting enforced oil extraction in the Amazon. The Ecuadorian government is selling off it´s oil supply to Chinese companies to pay back national debt whilst indigenous communities pay the price. The communities show remarkable insight, solidarity and strength whilst fighting these companies, who use underhand, manipulative and violent tactics in order to break community resistance and gain access to the land.
Schooling the World
The White Man´s Last Burden... ´If you want to change a culture in a single generation, how would you do it? You would change the way it educates it´s children. Colonial societies have forced children into schools across the world, and today well meaning volunteers build schools in every village that they can, convinced that this is the best way to help rural, underprivileged children. But is it? This documentary takes a critical look at the role of education in wiping out the indigenous way of life, only to replace it with a monoculture of knowledge and culture.
