DocuLatino 4

CATAPA presents - from February 14th until March 15th - DocuLatino IV, a Latin American documentary festival. This edition puts forward the problems of the gold mining and oil industry.

While big transnational corporations make lots of profits, countries in the Souts are left with a huge social and ecological mess. Local ecosystems are devastated, rural communities lose their farmland, toxic products poison the drinking water for years. The consequences are desastrous, and often irreversible.

Doculatino promises you an interesting program with touching and sometimes shocking documentaries from Chili, Peru, Educador and Guatemala. Every evening we start with a short film, followed by a long documentary, which will be introduced by an expert in the film's subject.

This 4th edition in 4 cities

Doculatino starts on February 14th in Antwerp, goes to Brussels on February 22nd, shows on February 24th one documentary in Ghent and ends in Leuven from March 13-15th.
