IGUAZU FALLS, BEHIND THE SCENES
Balancing nature and onlookers
Bordering 3 countries, Paraguay, Brazil and Argentina, the Iguazu Falls are considered the most breathtaking in the world and the Iguazu National Park has been designated one of the 7 natural wonders of the world. But with nearly 1 million yearly visitors, it faces quite an ecological challenge.
The Guarani Indians have fallen victims to this booming industry. They had to sell their lands to hotel groups. Nowadays, they eke out a living no longer fishing or hunting but making handicrafts for tourists.
This film is about the men and women trying to preserve the delicate balance between preserving the nature and tending to the visitors’ curiosity.
