The Curse of Abundance

US Premiere

Directed by Ewa Ewart

Ecuador, Poland, 69 minutes

In 2007, Ecuador launched an initiative to leave some of its Amazonian oil reserves in the ground in exchange for financial compensation from the international community, ultimately protecting two cloistered indigenous tribes. Fast forward to 2017, Ecuador started drilling in the most pristine part of Yasuni, triggering new waves of protest. The film uncovers Ecuador’s battle to reconcile its green ambitions with tough economic realities: a dilemma sparking debate about development, and climate change around the world. Contains subtitles.
