Yasuni - two seconds of life
Ecuador/USA/AT 2010, 90 min, Leonardo Wild
In Ecuador, the Yasuni National Park is one of the sites with the greatest biodiversity on our planet – and it also holds a big part of Ecuador´s oil reserves. Ecuador´s president Rafael Correa has made an extraordinary proposal: If the world will pay for protection of it‘s green lungs, Ecuador will leave the oil in the ground and will invest in renewable energy.
Yasuni – Two Seconds of Life by Ecuadorian filmmaker Leonardo Wild explains this unique and complex case and gives speech to all parties involved.
