We are back with more movies that you can Watch Online for Free! A few weeks ago we connected and sent some questions over to Pablo Chehebar, the co-director/co-writer of Beavers: Patagonia Invaders. The movie is a documentary about an extraordinary incident in Argentina that began in 1946 that has had a lasting impact to present day.
“Argentina wanted to enrich its southern fauna, because it seemed to it that it did not have the attractiveness of the northern forests,” Pablo told us. “For this it decides to import 20 beavers, introduce them and thus develop a fur industry. 70 years later fur is no longer used to make coats and the beaver has become an unstoppable plague that is destroying the Patagonian forests. What to do with them? Kill them all? Eat them? Return them to Canada? Solutions that are still being sought, while the beaver continues to live in Patagonia, without fully understanding how it got there in the first place.”
I can barely wrap my head around the fact that 20 beavers were released in Tierra del Fuego, the southernmost island of Patagonia, and turned into more than 150,000 beavers. That is madness. Pablo went into why they turned this story into a documentary, “Because we believe that the worst weapon humanity has is ignorance. Deep down, the beaver is a problem of ignorance about the so-called “invasive species” and what to do with them.”
Beavers: Patagonia Invaders was co-directed by Pablo Chehebar and Nicolás Iacouzzi and features Christopher Anderson, Claudio Bertonatti, and Mariela Borgnia. You can watch for free on Tubi TV and The Roku Channel.
