Yasuni is one of the most biodiverse regions on the planet and home to some of the most isolated indigenous people. Filmmaker Ryan Killackey takes us on an incredible expedition – a 1,500 kilometer journey along 7 rivers – through this Ecuadorian reserve, sharing the story of the conflict in Yasuni that has pitted biodiversity and human rights against oil and commercialisation.

Additional Information

Ryan KillackeyA Chicago native and graduate of The University of Montana, Ryan Killackey started his career as a wildlife biologist on various research projects studying frogs in freshwater lakes, tracking and live trapping wolverines, and as a wilderness ranger at a bear observatory in Alaska, but his passion was with amphibians. After several years in the U.S., this passion lead him to the Ecuadorian Amazon and a transition to photography and film began in 2005. He has since worked on several projects for Giant Screen Films (3D/IMAX), National Geographic, PBS, Yale E360 and others. Yasuni Man is his first feature film.
