Yasuni - two seconds of life by Wild, Leonard

In Ecuador, the Yasuni National Park in the Western Amazon Region is one of the sites with the greatest biodiversity on our planet, but it also holds a big part of Ecuadors oil reserves. Could the livelihood of the residents and future of the rainforest be at stake? The documentary film impressingly documents the whole case and gives speech to all parties involved. The view on this precious location is completed by music from involved musicians and impressive images of the vast Amazone.

About Yasuni
Declared as a World Wide Biosphere Reserve in 1989 by the UNESCO, Yasuni covers 982.000 hectares and is home of many local native tribes like the Tagaeri and Taromenane groups, as well as the Huaorani. However, the ITT block of the Yasuni also has 20 percent of Ecuador's crude oil reserves, with most of the park already being exploited by national and international oil companies, most of which suffer oil spills leaving behind contaminated areas.
