WHEN TWO WORLDS COLLIDE
2016 - Peru - Spanish - 100 Minutes
Directors: Heidi Brandenburg, Mathew Orzel
Tense and wholly immersive, filmmakers Heidi Brandenburg and Matthew Orzel take you directly into the line of fire between two powerful Peruvian leaders over the future of the country. When president Alan Garcia attempts to extract oil and minerals from untouched Amazonian land with the hopes of elevating his country’s economic prosperity, he is met with fierce, violent opposition led by indigenous leader Alberto Pizango. This nuanced, even handed film capture all angles of a conflict that quickly escalates from a heated war of words to one of deadly violence.
