[Extract] The Human Rights Arts and Film Festival 2013 is showing across Australia during May and June. One of the films on offer is Law of the Jungle.

This film charts the progress of a trial of Indigenous Peruvians who have protested against environmental degradation of their land, committed by global oil corporation Pluspetrol. During the peaceful protest on the company's air strip, the special forces police open fire and in the fracas a police officer is killed. Fifty protesters are arrested, tortured and incarcerated for eight months before being approached by human rights lawyer Jorge Tacuri who has been informed of their plight.
