Dream People of the Amazon

Dream People of the Amazon We'll be joined by Larry Lansburgh on this edition of Charlotte Talks with Mike Collins. Lansburgh is an Academy Award nominated and Emmy Award winning director whose most recent project has changed his outlook and inspired him to speak publicly about the group of indigenous people the film focused on. His documentary "Dream People of the Amazon" follows the Achuar people, who live in a part of the Amazon rain forest that is as pristive today as it was a thousand years ago. The documentary follows the Achuar as they work to save their land from oil operations who are desperate for the oil under their territory. We'll talk about the Achuar, the rain forest, and the situation there today. Contact the show: 704-926-9323, 800-603-9323, charlottetalks@wfae.org or comment at Charlotte Blogs.
