Amazon Gold (2012) Trailer
Trailer for the documentary Amazon Gold.
Narrated by Academy Award winners Sissy Spacek and Herbie Hancock, Amazon Gold is the disturbing account of a clandestine journey that bears witness to the apocalyptic destruction of the rainforest in the pursuit of illegally mined gold. The result of the devastation will create consequences on a global scale. Two journalists who normally cover war and human rights issues travel along Peru’s Madre de Dios River to reveal the savage unraveling of pristine rainforest. The men are guided by Peruvian environmental activist and biologist, Enrique Ortiz, who is uniquely qualified to point out the heedless exploitation of the land for minor gain.
