His is an important issue that needs to be discussed. But it will take more than this dry doc - best left to cable TV - to do the matter justice.
A beautifully filmed and patiently explained assessment of a proposal to build five hydroelectric dams in the Patagonia region of Chile.
There's plenty here to interest eco-issues followers, but little to draw a larger audience. For all its global context, Patagonia Rising remains frustratingly local.
Recent newspaper coverage will provide more context, and will take up 80 fewer minutes of your time.
Elicits the combination of rage and helplessness (and guilty wanderlust) unique to the genre with admirable thoroughness and balance.
A documentary that makes a good case against the building of five large dams in Chile designed to make a profit for European investors.
A well-meaning but dry and pedantic documentary, the movie doesn't do much to bring fire, passion or interest to this story outside of a demographic consisting of the most ardent environmentalists.
A model of clarity about a topic of burning urgency, namely the threat that mega-dams poses to farmers and ranchers in Chile, and the planet overall.
Although director Brian Lilla is neither a compelling storyteller nor a journalist, he presents a passionate and cogent scientific argument against Chile's latest dam project in Patagonia Rising.
While it might be silly to fault the doc for stopping short of a call to action for North American audiences, the lack of one turns the viewer into a powerless bystander.
