Video teaser: BERTA SOY YO

 

SINOPSIS
En Honduras, uno de los países más violentos del mundo, el asesinato de la luchadora social Berta Cáceres continúa en la impunidad. Guiada por un mapa que Berta le dibujó en una libreta un día antes de morir, la directora y su equipo siguen las vertientes de la memoria familiar y la investigación criminal para contarnos quién era Berta, contra qué intereses se debatió hasta la muerte.
Un relato que exalta la vida a través de la lucha de los pueblos originarios que durante siglos han defendido su territorio, su cultura y los bienes comunes, contra todas las formas y tiempos del colonialismo. Un viaje hasta antiguos lugares de ancianos lencas que quizá puedan susurrarnos la verdad.

SYNOPSIS
In Honduras, one of the most violent countries in the world, the assassination of the social justice leader Berta Cáceres, remains in impunity. Guided by a map that Berta drew in Katia´s notebook one day before she was killed, the director Katia Lara and her team continue along the contours of the memories of Berta’s family as well as the line of criminal investigation to show us who Berta was and what corrupt interests she fought against until her death.

This will be a story that exalts life through the struggle of Indigenous peoples, who for centuries have defended their territory, their culture and common goods, against all forms and times of colonialism. We will take a cinematic trip to old places of Lenca elders who may be able to whisper the truth to us.
