Watch ‘Avatar’ in the Amazon

Posted in film by aldorf on February 4, 2010

A group of indigenous leaders from the Amazon in Ecuador’s capital Quito, saw the film “Avatar” on the big screen in 3D.

After the screening Mayra Vega, head of the Women’s Association of the Shuar Nation said: “It left a huge impression on us. For example, the movies are almost real. It’s an example that makes us think a lot because the indigenous are defending their rights. We have to defend, just as the indigenous so clearly defended in the movie. We had an uprising; we had a confrontation with gases. It’s the same as what we just saw in the movie.”
