In the remote Darién Gap rainforest, indigenous communities face the advance of loggers and cattle ranchers, an existential threat to their way of life and the ecosystem upon which they rely. When a rare Harpy Eagle nest is discovered near their community, the Emberá tribe of Playa Muerto find an unlikely ally. By protecting their lands and the Eagle's habitat, they can benefit from the ecotourism she attracts, and reconnect with their own traditional heritage. 

Aguilucho: Dance of the Harpy Eagle had its world premiere at the DC Environmental Film Festival 2021, and is currently screening at festivals around the world. Find upcoming screenings and learn more at
