Frontera Invisible - Palm Oil in Colombia
Film Screening and Discussion with filmmaker
16. November, 13:30 – 14:40 Uhr
Filmmaker and Director of Communication
Transport & Environment
Agriculture and Bioenergy Policy Officer
Frontera Invisible is the true story of communities trapped in the middle of the world’s longest war, in which big landowners’ rush for palm oil to produce ‘green’ fuel has displaced peasant farmers and indigenous people. It has destroyed natural habitats and concentrated land in the hands of the rich.
One part environmental documentary and one part social research through victims’ testimonials, Frontera Invisible gives voice to the local communities that are fighting hard to reclaim their land while exposing the major pitfalls of biofuels policy.
After the screening of the documentary there will be a discussion with the filmmaker Nico Muzi and Trees Robijn Agriculture and Bioenergy Officer at NABU on the film and the current policy discussed which could push palm oil demand in Europe further.
