Two years ago there was a clash between the elite of an anti terror police force and a group of protesting indigenous on an oil company¿s airstrip deep in the Peruvian jungle. A policeman is killed and the 'usual suspects', the indigenous leaders, are rounded up. They are charged with the severest of crimes, including murder, terrorism and violence. One of those accused is our main character: Fachin, hunter and leader. Under usual circumstances, the story would end here and the indigenous would rot in prison. But this time, a new self-confident generation of indigenous in collaboration with a clever lawyer from Lima and a local English pastor decides to take on the judicial system and fight back. They start to collect and produce evidence, in particular, video footage from before, during and after the clash.
Det Danske Filminstitut registrerer international festivaldeltagelse og priser til danske film,
dog primært de titler, som Filminstituttet varetager i sin festivaldistribution,
og primært i forbindelse med de festivaler, som Filminstituttet har prioriteret at samarbejde med.
Registreringen af festivaldeltagelse og priser til danske film, der ikke er i festivaldistribution,
foretages kun for "launch"-festivaler ifølge Filminstituttets prioriterede festivalliste. Se listen over prioriterede festivaler.
