Gredal Jungle Community| 7mins
Director: Lisette and Ryan Cheresson | Producer: Lisette and Ryan Cheresson
Focus Years: 2012 | Country: United States
Downriver from Rurrenabaque in the Bolivian Amazon sits the Moseten Community, an indigenous jungle community that makes ends meet farming bananas, sugarcane, and rice. Itâ€™s about a two-hour boat trip down the Amazon River to get to the community, so trips back and forth to town are infrequent, and most of the communityâ€™s needs are provided for from their own land. While their organic practices are supported by the communityâ€™s beliefs, itâ€™s just as much about lack of access to modern tools as an intellectual decision to keep farming traditionally. Herman Soto, the village president, tells their story.
