THE FILM 

A new documentary underscoring the threats facing the rainforest in Peru, the perpetuation of climate change, and the people who are fighting to protect it. The main culprits: gold miners, uncontrolled deforestation, poaching, and their impacts on wildlife which threaten the home to an extraordinary ecosystem hosting species of animals, birds and plants that are found nowhere else on the planet. This according to director Jérôme Dolbert, who sets out to bring public awareness of the imminent perils facing one of the most beautiful rainforests in the world.

 DIRECTOR 

 

For this documentary,  Jérôme Dolbert wanted to bring back very impressive footage: go everywhere, to go in illegal, dangerous areas, where the mafia, often protected by police corruption, or by the local authorities, extracts wood or gold without any respect for the forest and local wildlife.

 
 

Throughout the world, about 900 million trees are cut down annually, as of 2014. Approximately 80,000 to 160,000 trees are cut down daily worldwide -- equivalent to 36 football fields every minute.

 
 

The Rainforests, which contain 90-140 billion metric tons of carbon, help stabilize local and Global Climate, but at the same time, deforestation releases 45 million tons of carbon a year according to Brazilian and British scientists, due to increased logging, plantation development, and burning.

 
 

In addition to forest destruction, the mining in Peru also releases pollutants into the rivers. Mercury is used to extract gold from the Earth. Large portions of mercury are consumed by fish hence end in the human body. Different studies have shown that consumption of mercury cause cancer, and they also indicate that it poses serious dangers to the ecosystem.
