YASUNI 2


YASUNI MAN - THE DOCUMENTARY FILM

- A multi award-winning film by writer, producer, director and cinematographer, Ryan Patrick Killackey -

A conflict rages deep within the Ecuadorian Amazon. Once under siege by missionaries seeking to civilize them, the Waorani people battle industry operatives and their own government in a fight to survive. Join filmmaker Ryan and his native friend Otobo as they embark on an expedition into the most bio-diverse forest on Earth. Witness what may be lost as oil companies encroach, human rights violations run rampant, and a forest Eden is destroyed - all for the oil that lies beneath Yasuni.

"Yasuni Man contains some of the more remarkable scenes ever caught on film; it's a portrait of a place and a people under tremendous stress, and on whose fate much of the planet's future rests." - Bill McKibben (Author and Founder of 350.org)
