Deep in the heart of Patagonia, Chile flow two of the world's purest rivers, the Baker and Pascua. Fed by vast glacial systems, these free-flowing watersheds drive biodiversity in temperate rainforests, estuaries and marine ecosystems. They are also the life source for Patagonia's most tenacious residents, the gauchos, the iconic South American cowboys who endure relentless winds and long winters on remote ranches in these river valleys. Isolated and largely undeveloped Patagonia and its people are caught in a heated conflict surrounding a proposal to build five large hydroelectric dams on the Baker and Pascua Rivers. Promoted as "clean" energy, the project's cultural and environmental impacts would forever alter the region. Alternatives exist. Clean energy experts are proving the viability of solar, wind and geothermal resources developed much closer to demand and infrastructure. In Patagonia Rising, Director Brian Lilla takes an in-depth look at the controversy.

Patagonia Rising Dvd is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent film While these dam projects have been temporarily suspended, the story of individual and community action to fight them is inspiring. Seeing this film was one of the inspirations for my first trip to the Aysen region of Chile. Pick up a copy and learn about the landscape and people in one of the most remote and beautiful parts of the planet.
