Fronteira Brazil - The Struggle for Land in Mato Grosso

Fronteira Brazil - Der Kampf um Land in Mato Grosso

Globalisation has also been long under way in Brazil: powerful concerns buy up entire rain forests and deforest them in order to plant fields of Soya. This documentary focuses on this vast and invasive reclamation process and its social and ecological ramifications. The starting point is the newly paved tarmac road, the BR163, which runs right through the rain forests of the Amazon. Once upon a time it was natural rubber and gold that drove people into the Amazon looking for wealth or a better life: Today it is the Soya boom. As a result land prices along the BR163 constantly rise and it is often only through illegal land grabbing, that people can secure a spot.
