LOS ESCUALOS

Young Chilean Kayakers of Patagonia

     

ESPAÑOL ENGLISH

A documentary about a youth kayak club from the remote town of Cochrane, Patagonia, Chile.

 

 

Patagonia's rivers Baker & Pascua are threatened by the construction of five mega dams.

For the past 19 years, Club Náutico Escualo, (Escualo = Shark) a youth kayak club in the remote Patagonian town of Cochrane, Chile has taught kids between the ages of 4 and 18 to kayak on the emerald waters of the nearby Baker River. In the process, the club has fostered integrity, community, and love for the environment. Now the Baker and nearby Pascua rivers are threatened by the construction of five mega dams that would destroy the river and one of the last great wildernesses on earth, while forever altering the town of Cochrane and the lives of the Escualos.
