BRAVE: forbidden CINEMA
dir. Ricardo Torres, Columbia/Switzerland 2014

A poignant musical documentary bringing closer to home the situation in the Columbian countryside. For generations, farmers from the village of Las Pavas have been cultivating the soil, which gives them food and work. However, their current rhythm has been brutally disturbed by corporations earning fortunes from the production of palm oil, whose plantations interfere with the ecosystem and destroy the social fabric. Having money and power, with the support of state authorities, oil producers take over more and more of the tropical country, expropriating farmers of their fertile land. The dwellers of Las Pavas, however, do not give up, and their resistance becomes ... music. Thanks to it they are able to tell the world, in a beautiful manner and in accordance with tradition, about their experience: on the one hand, dramatic, and on the other, still full of hope.They will also tell their story in Wrocław – a group of courageous farmers will come to Brave Festival with their performance titled Los Paveros por la tierra and after the screening of Tomorrow Will Come they will meet together with Ricardo Torres, the film director, and the audience to talk about the film and the current situation in Colombia.

Movie in Spanish with Polish and English subtitles.
