A few years ago, the Ecuadorian government gave an oil company permission to drill for oil on land belonging to the Sarayaku Indigenous Community. The Sarayaku were never consulted and they have been fighting the decision ever since. This film shows them take their struggle to the highest regional court in the Americas. If they win, the court's decision will benefit Sarayaku and many other Indigenous groups across the region. It will send a powerful message to all governments asking them to consult with Indigenous communities and request their consent before carrying out development projects that may affect their lives.

Amnesty International has supported the Sarayaku's campaign to defend their rights and the rights of Indigenous peoples across the Americas. For more information about the campaign and the documentary, please email desc.america@amnesty.org.
