Synopsis

Preserves is a short documentary that explores this question through one of the most biodiverse places on Earth – Yasuní National Park. Through poetic visuals, animation and a soundscape both haunting and jubilant in turns, Preserves is a journey of discovery and appreciation of the life that will be lost when an ecosystem is destroyed to provide nine days worth of petroleum for an oil-drunk world.
