A Wild Idea is a documentary about Ecuador’s proposal to fight climate change. The government would leave in tact the vast oil reserves that lie beneath the pristine portion of the Amazon, as long as the world compensates the country with hundreds of millions of dollars. If accepted, this proposal would contribute to preserving biodiversity, avoiding carbon dioxide emissions and respecting the rights of indigenous peoples and their way of life. A Wild Idea shows how an initiative that sounds utopian turned into an official proposal championed around the world.
In 2010 Australia was facing the worst drought in recorded history. At the end of the river in the Coorong Ngarrindjeri Elder Uncle Moogy grew tired of watching his ancestral home die and so united a group of different Aboriginal River Nations in a 2300-kilometre pilgrimage to dance the spirit back into the river and into themselves. By the time they had finished the drought had broken and what followed was the wettest wet season in living memory with floods throughout the basin.
