When Two Worlds Collide (2016/First Run DVD)

Picture: C Sound: C Extras: D Documentary: B+

This is a film on the Peruvian Government, it's people, and the governments who want to do big business and oil with foreign resources. While the Peruvian Government sees it only as a stepping stone on to the world stage and as a way to boost their economy, the native indigenous sees it as a destruction of their way of life. As as they are unable to come to an accord, both sides erupts into deadly violence in Heidi Brandenburg & Mathew Orzel's When Two Worlds Collide (2016).

This film is the documentary of how modern 'progress' works. The Peruvian Government and leaders want more power, more money for it's people and will do anything to bring foreign aid and business to it's country, BUT they are willing to ignore the will of it's indigenous native people. While the natives have started out as peaceful, they became violent when the police open fired on the protesters. Now, both sides continue to use hostages, each side views itself as 'victims' and there is no peace.

This is probably a testament to oil companies and how business is conducted by government superpowers, their hand are kept clean because it is foreign government protecting their (American) interests, and it is not their environment and waters being polluted. Governments promises modernization, modern comforts and easier living for the people. Government leaders enrich themselves and hope their business and sins will be buried under red tape and will be forgotten in time. As long as they control a majority vote in the office, they can control/repress it's people and the change the country's history. Will this situation ever change?

The anamorphically enhanced 1.78 X 1 image and lossy Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo are a bit weak and rough, but that's unavoidably inherent to the production. There are sadly no extras.
