Terras/ Lands

Maya Da-rin. (Brazil, 2009) 75 min.


Three countries, two towns, the forest. On the triple frontier between Brazil, Colombia and Peru, the twin towns of Letícia and Tabatinga form an urban island surrounded by the Amazon rain-forest. Cut-off from the economic centers of its respective countries by the forest and the distance, this border is characterized by the constant transit of people and exchange of goods, the incessant sound of motorcycles and radios, the mixture of traditional and technological knowledge and the presence of different cultures and nationalities. Following the ordinary events and the constant coming and going of people along the border, Terras portrays the presence and the influence of the frontier on the lives of its inhabitants.  Portuguese and Spanish with English subtitles.
