This wonderful short film was a delightful multi-lingual, multi-cultural experience.  As far as we know, it is the first documentary ever made in the native language of the Kichwa people of Ecuador.  The production process was a marvelous melange of Kichwa, Spanish, and a smattering of English.  We shot and edited in Ecuador, so as to have access to the very best local activists and translators, and in turn, the Kichwa people involved got to have a real impact on the message and approach in the piece.
