The Producer's Journal|
"The Living Edens: Manu" producer Kim
MacQuarrie kept a journal while living with and
researching a remote Yura (Yaminahua - Yabaishta) Indian community
that lived within Manu National Park. For at
least 60 years before MacQuarrie's visit, this warlike Yura tribe had
kept outsiders from entering the northern boundary of Manu (in southeastern Peru).
For 12 days starting on November 12, you can return with Kim
to 1989 and to Manu, and live his incredible exploration.
Bookmark this page, and we'll see you then.
Educated in France, the United States, and
Peru, Kim MacQuarrie is an Emmy-winning
writer/director/producer who has lived for more than four
years in Peru. Part of that time was spent living with
the Yura (Yaminahua) Indians, a small group of
recently-contacted Amazonian natives now living just
outside of Manu National Park. MacQuarrie is the author
of Peru's Amazonian Eden: Manu National Park and
Biosphere Reserve, and has made two previous films
on Manu: "Spirits of the Rainforest" and
"The Spirit Hunters." For further information on Mr. MacQuarrie's
