Event Details

Based on real events, Kvrvf Nawel’s film recounts the tale of a tenant farming community in revolt in the province of Esmeraldas in northern Ecuador. Exploited into debt by a corrupt landowner and despot, the peasants look for options to get out of this scheme and take back the land they till, the land that is rightfully theirs. Together they paralyze the local and national economy, forcing their voices to be heard in a process that alters their personal history and that of the entire country. From the seeds these men and women dare to plant, a brave and necessary rebellion of collective struggle is born.
