Desperate conservationists struggle against oil interests as native people in the heart of Ecuadorian Amazon vie to preserve their culture. A filmmaker-biologist reveals the rich biodiversity in peril and those who call it home.
Yasuni Man is a film about a conflict raging deep within the Ecuadorian Amazon. It's a real-life Avatar story. Once under siege by missionaries seeking to civilize them, the Waorani people battle industry operatives and their own government in a fight to survive. Join filmmaker Ryan Patrick Killackey and his native friend Otobo as they embark on an expedition into the most bio-diverse forest on Earth. Witness what may be lost as oil companies encroach, human rights violations run rampant, and a forest Eden is destroyed - all for the oil that lies beneath Yasuni.
