Dr. Juan Carlos Galeano’s latest documentary film, “El Río"

“Dr. Juan Carlos Galeano’s latest documentary film, “El Río,” aims to illustrate the unique relationship between the indigenous people of the Peruvian Amazon and their land. By drawing attention to and discussing the differences between western ideologies and those found in the Amazon, the documentary increases awareness of the emotional and spiritual effects of environmental resource depletion. Galeano was joined by his former student Callaghan Keane, who traveled to the Amazon as a guest of an indigenous community and “shadowed the whole filming process.” The film is set to debut at a festival in Detroit this summer.
