WHEN TWO WORLDS COLLIDE: Indigenous Peruvians Fight for the Rainforest; 
Documentary Has US Theatrical Premiere August 17

When Two Worlds Collide posterFilm Forum is pleased to present the US 
theatrical premiere of *WHEN TWO WORLDS COLLIDE*, the debut documentary 
by *Heidi Brandenburg* and *Mathew Orzel*, beginning *Wednesday*, 
*August 17*. It tells a chilling story of Alberto Pizango, indigenous 
leader of Peru's Amazonian people, vs. Alan Garcia, President of Peru 
(2006-2011), who is backed by the multinational corporations intent on 
exploiting the Amazon's rich natural resources. This modern David and 
Goliath battle is being fought in one of the world's most lush and 
magnificent rainforests. Pizango, reminiscent of Cesar Chavez in his 
charisma and implacability, organizes people who have called the 
rainforest home for a millennia, in opposition to the illegal and 
violent takeover of their land. "Frankly, they're savages," intones the 
Minister of the Interior on Peruvian TV. Film Forum recently played the 
Oscar-nominated *EMBRACE OF THE SERPENT*, a drama of Amazonian intrigue 
and Western corruption. Here is a documentary that updates that story 
with aplomb. The film won the World Cinema Documentary Prize for Best 
Debut Feature at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival, as well as multiple 
other festival awards.

*WHEN TWO WORLDS COLLIDE will be screened August 17 – 30, at Film Forum, 
209 West Houston Street (West of 6th Avenue), with screenings daily at 
12:45, 3:00, 5:20, 7:40, and 9:50*. It is presented with generous 
support from the Richard Brick, Geri Ashur & Sara Bershtel Fund for 
Social Justice Documentaries.

*Directors Heidi Brandenburg & Mathew Orzel and producer Taira Akbar 
will be in NYC and available for interviews opening week.*

"/Potent. Vivid. Makes its case powerfully. Shot over several years' 
course (the film) maintains a raw verité feel despite its narrative, 
temporal and geographic sprawl/."
*- Dennis Harvey, Variety*

"/Thought-provoking. A deftly-edited, heart-on-sleeve social documentary 
that toys with Fog of War moral ambiguities/."
*- Lee Marshall, Screen Daily*

"/An in-depth investigation. Earnest, direct and sometimes surprisingly 
dramatic... an insider's perspective/."
*- Justin Lowe, The Hollywood Reporter*

_*Press screening:*_
Wednesday, August 10 at 10:30 am
Screening will be held at Film Forum
