"El Perro Del Hortelano" ("Dog in the Manger") is a feature comedy about Brus, an indigenous artist, and his efforts to organize his community against an American oil company, Kenny Oil. Searching for answers, Brus joins a local NGO, finding himself entangled in the subversive work of an American researcher, Angie. As Brus explores the surreal world of volunteers and development experts, he ultimately discovers his own way of bringing strength to his community. This film was made possible by the generous donations of volunteers who provided food, lodging, as well as top-of-the-line filming equipment. "El Perro Del Hortelano" was shot on the Canon Mark ii in full HD, and includes the music of the world-famous musicians Chicha Libre. The film was also produced as a cooperative project with the support of the Selva Rica Coop and Magic Flute Films.
