DocuLatino 5

Wed, 20/02/2013 (All day) - Fri, 15/03/2013 (All day)

For the 5th time CATAPA will be hosting the DocuLatino festival in which it draws attention at the sustainable management of natural resources. DocuLatino V  runs from February 20th until March 15th and focuses on the problems of mining non-renewable resources like gold and oil, and its impact on the bio-fuel industry.

Large multinational enterprises take the huge profits, but leave the South with social and ecological devastation. Local ecosystems are destroyed, rural communities lose their land, toxic chemicals waste drinking water reserves for future generations. The consequences are disastrous, and often irreversible.

DocuLatino guarantees an attractive program of unique imagery and fascinating documentaries from Peru, Bolivia, Guatemala… At the start of every documentary an invited speaker will introduce shortly the theme of the evening.
