THE RIVER BETWEEN US is all that separates the isolated Mashco Piro from the complexities of the modern world in the Peruvian Amazon. When the Mashco Piro decide to seek contact with the outside world, a team of Peruvian anthropologists is dispatched to understand their motives. A brutal murder pitches the anthropologists against angry villagers and missionaries, revealing a dark undercurrent of narcotrafficking and conflict over land. THE RIVER BETWEEN US has been screened by Arte, Al Jazeera and DW.
