Dirs. Daniele Incalcaterra & Fausta Quattrini
France / Argentina - 2012 - 95mins
The Paraguayan Chaco is one of the world’s last virgin frontiers, where modern-day cowboys battle with the indigenous populations over agricultural drilling rights.
Filmmaker Daniele Incalcaterra was left 12,355 acres of land in the Chaco by his father, but when he decides, through a combination of altruism and frustration, to return his untouched land to the indigenous Nevada people, tensions begin to run high.
Battling against GM soybean growers, as well as cattle ranchers and oil prospectors, Incalcaterra forms his own motley posse to help preserve this beautifully rugged piece of forest forever.
This film will be followed by a Q&A with Elias Diaz Peña (award winning Paraguayan Environmentalist and Coordinator of Friends of the Earth Paraguay) and Nick Rau (Friends of the Earth, UK). Both are working closely with FOE Paraguay to protect land and people's rights.
Presented in partnership with Friends of the Earth
