When Two Worlds Collide

September 16 thru 22

Monica Film Center, Santa Monica

Director, Heidi Brandenburg, will participate in a Q&A after the first evening screening on Friday, September 16

In this tense and immersive tour de force, WHEN TWO WORLDS COLLIDE brings audiences directly into the line of fire between two powerful, opposing Peruvian factions who will stop at nothing to keep their respective goals intact. On the one side is President Alan Garcia and the Peruvian government who, eager to enter the world stage, begins aggressively extracting oil, minerals, and gas from untouched indigenous Amazonian land. He is quickly met with fierce opposition from the indigenous people living in the Amazon jungle, led by Alberto Pizango, whose impassioned speeches against Garcia’s destructive actions become a rallying cry. When President Garcia continues to ignore their pleas, a tense war of words erupts into deadly violence, bloody protests and chaotic clashes between both sides. Details and tickets
