Synopsis of “When Two Worlds Collide”

“When Two Worlds Collide” is a documentary chronicling the opposition between the Peruvian government and the indigenous people over the Amazonian rainforest. Peruvian president, Alan Garcia, pushed for the development of the Peruvian Amazon. He called for the extraction of its natural resources while taking the land of the indigenous people. Alberto Pizango organized people from different indigenous tribes to protest this unconstitutional taking of land. After failed attempts at a compromise, the indigenous tribes organized a strike. This opposition between Garcia and Pizango, led to an over fifty-day strike which turned into mass violence. There was a loss of more than 100 native civilians and 14 policemen were killed.

Overview of Development in the Amazon

The Peruvian Amazon is the area of the Amazon rainforest that is included within the country of Peru. Peru has the second-largest portion of the Amazon rainforest after the Brazilian Amazon and is one of the most biodiverse places on Earth. This region comprises sixty percent of the country, yet only five percent of Peruvians live in the Peruvian Amazon. However, the Peruvian Amazon is home to many indigenous tribes, including the Aguaruna, Cocama-Cocamilla and the Urarina. These people have lived in isolated in the Peruvian Amazon for countless generations and they depend on the natural resources that the rainforest provides them.

Alan Garcia, leader of the Peruvian Aprista Party, served as the President of Peru from 1985 to 1990 and again from 2006 to 2011. His later term was dedicated to improving the economy for Peru which had been struggling with inflation and other economic issues. To alleviate the economy, one of Alan Garcia’s main agenda item was development in the Amazon. The Amazon has lots of natural resources like oil, lumber, gold, etc. Garcia encouraged foreign entrepreneurs to invest in the Amazon. Garcia signed special decrees that allowed foreign corporations to enter indigenous lands for oil drilling, mining, and logging.

Alberto Pizango, President of Interethnic Association for the Development of the Peruvian Rainforest and member of the Shawi tribe, organized the protest movement against the exploitation of the Amazon rainforest. He felt the laws were unconstitutional because the Peruvian government needs permission to enter indigenous lands. Pizango met with many lawmakers to peacefully come to an agreement between Garcia’s party and the indigenous people. No agreement could be made and thus the strike began. The strike lasted nearly fifty days but on June 5th, 2009, García ordered Peruvian Police and military forces to stop Amazonian Indigenous protesters from protesting in the Bagua region. Chaos ensued and more than 100 native civilians and 14 policemen were killed.


This documentary is very relevant to our class. This documentary goes into great detail the development of Amazon. As discussed in class, development is a process of change in the composition of an economy of a particular region and the well-being of its inhabitants, relative to other areas. It involves describing how the nature of an economy (agricultural, industrial, or service-based) changes, but another way is to measure the variability of human well-being (education, health, gender equality) in space. In 2007, President Alan García wanted to increase the Peruvian Gross National Product (GNP) and Gross National Income (GNI) by calling to American entrepreneurs to invest in the country’s finite natural resources, meaning the Amazonia forest. He promoted Peru by claiming, “We don’t have any political conflicts!” Development in the Amazon began and stimulated the Peruvian economy. However, development came at the enormous cost of destroying the Amazon and disturbing the land of the indigenous tribes. This is the opposite of sustainable development which is “development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.”  We discussed in class at length that development usually comes at the cost of the environment, and Amazonian development is the perfect example.


I found this documentary heartbreaking. It is such a complicated situation and each side was hurt and devastated. This documentary really showed the horrible effect that development has had on the environment. I wished I had had a bit more context and information on the environmental impact on the Amazon. That probably would have helped me better understand the situation. The documentary was very one-sided, which was supported by other reviews, and I think I would have liked some more nonpartisan context on the issue so I could form my own opinion. However, it was a great documentary and talked about a lot of issues like environmental issues, development, political corruption, media, and native discrimination. I think one suggestion I have would be to include the perspective of the Lima residents. The documentary really focused on the native people and the politicians but I would have liked to see how the Lima residents viewed the protests. Overall, I would recommend the documentary to others. Just as a warning, some scenes are graphic at some points. But I would recommend this documentary for great insight into a heartbreaking situation in the Amazon.
