Hautes terres (2014)
1h 30min · Documentary, Drama · 15 October 2014
In the Brazilian Nordeste, Vanilda and her husband Antonio, along with twenty other farmers families, obtain some lands. Supported by the landless trade union,they spent four years occupying an camp in a remote mountain . Like pioneers from an old western, they settle a farming community on this land haunted by dryness, with the sole strength of their arms and hopes. The collective management of the property and its resources turns out to be an adventure even more demanding than the conquest of the lands. It is this utopian force that the film looks at, grounding through the ordeal of a desolated reality.
