Amazonians make movies also

Tired of watching stupid white people make jackasses of themselves talking about those "poor Indians" living in the Amazon and who they ought to just grown up and learn to be white?

Well, a new Peruvian film floating around the internet, titled "El Perro del Hortelano", takes on the the drive to exploit the Amazon's oil reserves (the film was made where there is the current standoff with Hunt Oil) and the racist discourse of "development" promoted by Alan Garcia and outsiders, instead showing what an indigenous protagonist has to say and think. (What an idea, actually listening to those savages!)

To watch the rest go to the film website here.
