In Fascist Italy in the thirties, many inhabitants of Borgo emigrated to the colonies of the Italian Empire in Africa. Pushed by poverty or the spirit of adventure, they went in search of the Eldorado propaganda had promised them. But their dream crumbles after just a few years of hard labor. War and the fall of the regime led to the loss of the colonies, forcing them to return to Borgo having lost everything. The words, written memoirs and hundreds of photos of witnesses reveal to us a tale long shrouded in silence.

23 September Treviso – Frontera Invisible at “Punti di Contatto Festival “

PUNTI DI CONTATTO - storie di frontiere in cooperation with Sole Luna Doc Film Festival 23 September, Piazza San Parisio, Treviso Screening of "Frontera invisible"(2017, Nicolás Richat - Nico Muzi) Frontera Invisible is the true story of communities trapped in the middle of the world’s longest war, in which Big Business’ rush for palm oil to produce ‘green’ fuel has displaced peasant farmers and indigenous people, destroyed natural habitats and concentrated land in the hands of ‘the rich’. A blend of environmental documentary and social research through victims’ testimonials, Frontera Invisible gives a voice to the local communities that are fighting hard to reclaim their land while exposing the major pitfalls of biofuels policy. Colombia is on the cusp of a peace deal that will end 60 years of armed conflict. A war that has displaced more people than the entire population of Denmark. Meanwhile, the government plans to keep planting palm to supply Colombia and Europe with ‘biodiesel’. Will peace return the land to its true owners or merely hand it over to Big Agribusiness?
