Narrated by Academy Award–winners Sissy Spacek and Herbie Hancock, this documentary by the Amazon Aid Foundation is the disturbing account of the destruction of Peru’s Amazon rain forest caused by illegally mined gold. Ron Haviv and Donovan Webster, two war journalists, led by Peruvian scientist and activist Enrique Ortiz, bear witness to the apocalyptic destruction of this critical region and its transformation into a wasteland. This documentary reaffirms the right of the rain forest to exist as a repository of priceless biodiversity and not as the toxic remains of man’s greed for gold.

Tickets go on sale March 9 at 10 am for this event. Please contact our Visitor Experience Department at for more information.
