Film Show – Blood of the Amazon – Saturday 9th January 2016

This film will be shown on Saturday 9th January at The Yoga Studio in High Toynton. It will be part of a Horncastle Transition Social Evening starting at 6 pm. All welcome, please bring a dish and drink to share. Blood of the Amazon is a full length documentary which covers one woman’s story as she travelled from the headwaters in Ecuador to Brazil.
In a variety of boats she journeyed down the Amazon researching the effects of the oil industry on the environment and indigenous people who live there.

From the largest environmental lawsuit in history and the horrific contamination in the Amazon to a solution to the pollution they face and the Yasuni proposal to leave the oil in the ground.

Meet with the indigenous people themselves, oil company representatives, doctors and lawyers, missionaries and military, Amazon warriors and environmentalists.

This is a film which gives a voice to the people and hope to the planet.
