Backpack and “Forest Weeps”

03.Watching Weeps

MANAGUA, Nicaragua, 9 December 2015 — Participants in my Backpack Video Journalism Workshop in Managua watch my most recent film, “When the Forest Weeps.” The film examines how Ecuador’s Kichwa Indians struggle as their deep spiritual relationship with the Amazonian rain forest diminishes in a clash with the forces of so-called modernity.

The film resonated with a number of these students, as some are dedicated to covering social issues that affect the most vulnerable of their population. You can watch the film if you click HERE.
