La Selva Tranquila

(New York City Theatrical Premiere)

Christian Chapman, Paul Jason Hoffman and Cody Troyer, 2013, 52 min

La Selva Tranquila presents an original look at conservation in the Peruvian Amazon, interweaving three stories of locals who must cut, capture, and sell anything they can to survive. Governments and activists speak of the importance of conservation, but we rarely hear the voices of people at the ground level. When locals struggle to survive each day at the jungle’s expense, how can they protect the land they love so deeply?
