Free Flight

Denise Richards, (Honduras/USA, 2015) 21 min.

Free Flight is a documentary on the Miskito people of Honduras and their attempt to save their natural resources, especially the scarlet macaw, from land-grabbers and poachers intent on destroying them.  The Miskitos are a pre-industrial society who believe that every animal and tree in the forest is an individual whom they must take pains not to offend.  Can they preserve their culture, their language, and their macaws, who play an important role in the ecosystem and also symbolize freedom for them.
