Moving from the deep Amazon rainforest to Washington D.C. and back, Spears From All Sides follows the battle between big oil and the native Waorani people in Ecuador. It is a dramatic story of deception, brutality, betrayal, and in the end hope.

Filmed over 3 years, Spears From All Sides covers the fight by the Waorani people to remove the oil companies from their lands and preserve the Yasuni Park – one of the most biologically diverse regions of the world. 

SPEARS FROM ALL SIDES, besides being a gripping story following action and events as they unfold, demonstrates the complex battles at the frontlines of climate change which we are rarely able to see on film.
