Ernesto Ceballos and Stephanie Boyd

A wave of settlers transforms a desert into a fertile valley of mangos and lemons. Suddenly, their efforts are threatened by multinational interests that have discovered gold beneath their lands. A community in the north of Peru awakens amidst the chaos and violence and peacefully mobilizes to defend their rights.


Ernesto Ceballos has produced short documentaries for BBC World, TVE, WDR, WETV Canada and Peruvian television. Along the way he has added camera work, editing, and directing to his professional repertoire. He is now president of Guarango.

Stephanie Boyd was born and raised in Canada. Before moving to Peru, she lived in Nairobi, Kenya and wrote articles on human rights issues for newspapers in Tanzania, Somalia, Sudan, Uganda and Kenya.
