Defenders of Life

Defenders of Life 

1 hr 34 mins

Defenders of Life reveals the dilemmas of an endangered civilization through the individual destiny of Dona Carmen, the controversial tribe leader. Hidden in the hills of Southern Costa Rica, the Ngäbe indigenous community is blowing on the last flames of an ancient civilization.

The symbiotic relationship between men and nature is the foundation of Defenders of Life’s philosophy as they face the dilemmas of mankind: love and duty, progress and tradition, violence and tolerance, identity, and the struggle for life and dignity.
