Patagonia Rising

Brian Lilla’s documentary Patagonia Rising tells the story of HidroAysen’s controversial plan to build five dams on the Baker and Pascua Rivers in Chilean Patagonia (see previous post) – or, to borrow the film’s subtitle, ‘a frontier story of water and power’. The film received its world premiere on the 1st of May 2011 at the Newport Beach Film Festival, and its Chilean premiere at the Third Annual Festival de Cine de la Patagonia Aysén in Coyhaique a week later.
