Maxima, directed by Claudia Sparrow, follows Indigenous Peruvian farmer Máxima Acuña’s fight for justice. The film provides an illustrative case study in the tactics used by transnational corporations to commit human rights violations and environmental crimes, the role played by non-profits and The World Bank, and ultimately, the resilience of one woman who refuses to back down. Feature length film coming this fall.
