Terra Sacer (Sacrificed Land)

Alberto Guevara and Elysée Nouvet

2008, 17:30 minutes, colour, English and Spanish with English subtitles


Banned in the United States in the 1960s, but sold throughout the third world well into the 1980s, the pesticide Nemagon and its after effects haunt over 100,000 Nicaraguan agricultural workers and their families. Terra Sacer (Sacrificed Land) is a film about the connections between exploited landscapes and bodies, between the politics of environmental and social abandonment. Focusing on Nemagon victims who are using their remaining strength to fight for recognition and justice, Terra Sacer is also about the refusal to sacrifice self and nation on the altar of economic ‘development’.
