A Wild Idea is a documentary about the Yasuní-ITT Initiative, Ecuador's unprecedented proposal for fighting global climate change. In exchange for payments from the world community, the country will leave untouched its largest oil reserves. The film takes the viewer to the Ecuadorian Amazon, capturing the rain forest's stunning biodiversity. The film also focuses on the millions of barrels of oil lying beneath a place known as the ITT Block. A Wild Idea has been sharing its point of view with audiences world-wide, and recently won Best Short Film at the Colorado Environmental Film Festival.
