Voices on the Road

After being screened around the world, ‘Voices on the Road’ is coming back home and it will be screening at IberoDocs Film Festival in Edinburgh this Saturday (29th Feb). 

It’s a project particularly close to my heart, mostly for two reasons:

Firstly because it explores a complex issue looking at it from the eyes of the locals. It tells of the expectations and the fears but it restrains from painting the issue as a black and white situation.

Secondly, it gave me the chance to work for the first time with Eilidh and Bethan, two talented filmmakers and inspirational individuals; their passion and focus while working on the project were highly contagious. 

No road. No voice. No future. Deep in the jungle a road is quietly destroying a protected rainforest, causing conflict and fear. Yet for some indigenous communities, desperate for change, it brings the promise of a better life… but at what cost?
