In 2007, then-Peruvian present Alan Garcia invited foreign companies to do business with the country by partnering on the extraction of natural resources. But when many of those resources were discovered on protected land occupied by indigenous Peruvians, the state entered into direct conflict with these communities and their leader, Alberto Pizango. In the breathtaking WHEN TWO WORLDS COLLIDE, directors Heidi Brandenburg Sierralta and Matthew Orzel capture the brutal urgency of the situation, placing their cameras in the middle of the confrontation to tell the powerful story of a nation at war with itself.
