This movie is deeply relevant to struggles for indigenous rights and environmental justice in North America, like the protest against the Dakota Access Pipeline at Standing Rock and the fight for clean, safe water for Canada’s First Nations.

When Two Worlds Collide follows Alberto Pizango, an indigenous leader who stands up to the Peruvian government and is accused of conspiracy and inciting violence. The movie won the World Cinema Documentary Prize for Best First Feature at the Sundance Film Festival.

All attendees are invited to stay after the screening for a Q & A with the directors of the film, the founder of Amazon Watch, and the director of Human Rights Watch’s Americas Division. The discussion will be followed by a reception with the panelists.
