Friday, January 31st, 7:30pm La Selva Tranquila Christian Chapman, P.J. 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?
Post-screening Q&A with directors Christian Chapman and Paul Jason Hoffman, and reception with Peak Organic Brewing Company and original cocktails from American Juice Company. Ticket includes drinks and traditional Peruvian appetizers.
