Deep in the remote Peruvian Amazon a road is quietly destroying a protected rainforest, causing conflict and fear. But for some indigenous communities, desperate for change, it also brings hope.
The road is cutting through a UNESCO World Heritage Site - the Manu Biosphere Reserve - and opening it up to the outside world.
Many indigenous communities are struggling to live in this 'paradise' and the road brings the promise of a better life. But at what cost?

Innes spends another bleak winter in the Scottish Highlands, relentlessly killing deer. Over the past twenty years he has planted over a million trees, working towards a 200-year long vision. But he knows this landscape needs death if life is ever to return - and that he needs to play the role of predator.
Eilidh was commissioned by Screen Scotland and the Scottish Documentary Institute to direct this short documentary as part of the SDI's Bridging The Gap programme for emerging directors. A Long Winter premiered at the Edinburgh International Film Festival and is currently being distributed in film festivals worldwide before its online release.
A Long Winter is an observational documentary that explores what we’re willing to sacrifice to create a better future, even if we don’t personally benefit from it.
