Curacautin Bajo El agua

Curacautín Bajo el Agua (Curacautín Under Water) shows how Chile’s current energy policy is allowing for the construction of dam projects in areas with the highest potential for tourism. Local citizens are rarely informed about these projects, nor are Indigenous people consulted about plans to build dams or raze forests on their ancestral lands. This short film tells of the Chilean government’s plans to build a dam on the Cautin River in Curacautín, a city in the Araucanía region, and shows how the citizens of Curacautín united to protect their sacred, pristine land, which also happens to be a UNSECO designated priority site for conservation.
