In the second chapter of filmmaker Oscar Leon’s series on Ecuador’s resistance, Leon travels to the rural Andean community of Buenos Aires to meet rural campesinos and indigenous citizens defending their land against multinational mining companies. The clash over land and resources goes to the heart of the conflict that paralyzed Ecuador’s society in the summer of 2022 and challenged the presidency of billionaire neoliberal banker Guillermo Lasso.
