 02/27/2017 - 11:42

Aún frente al más acérrimo criticismo – que ha ido en aumento durante los últimos años – los Oscar siguen siendo el evento del año para el séptimo arte. No sólo recopilan lo mejor de las producciones cinematográficas del año, sino que abren un debate para los que somos fanáticos del cine y no perdemos la oportunidad de ver los estrenos, tanto del cine Hollywoodense como de la escena independiente.

The Conservation Land Trust, together with American philanthropist Peter Buckley, purchased roughly 208,000 acres (84,200 hectares) along Chile’s coast south of Chaiten in 1994. Now Corcovado National Park, Chile’s sixth largest, covers approximately 726,000 acres and contains some eighty-two lakes, many ringed with ancient forests where pumas haunt the shadows. The bay, once the lair of pirates, is now proposed to become Chile’s first marine sanctuary, assuring a continuity of protection for wildlife from ocean bottom to mountain peaks.
