ABOUT THE FILM:
Filmed in the heart of the Ecuadorian Amazon in the Yasuni biosphere, OME: Tales From a Vanishing Homeland offers incredible access to the unique and ancient way of life of the Huaorani, one of Ecuadors most isolated indigenous groups. OME explores the intricacies of the Huaorani way of life, highlighting their connection to land and family, while raising questions about their future survival as oil companies encroach upon Ome, their homeland. (Raúl O. Paz-Pastrana, US & Ecuador, 2018, 33 min, in Spanish and Waoterero with English subtitles)
OME has won multiple awards and was funded by the Princess Grace Foundation-USA and the Hispanic Scholarship fund.
