Under Rich Earth (Bajo Suelos Ricos)
Running Time: 91 minutes
Venue: Playhouse Theater
Showtime: Monday, March 22, 2010 @ 10:00 PM
Director: Malcolm Rogge
Description: Under Rich Earth is a story about ordinary people with extraordinary courage. In a remote mountain valley in Ecuador, coffee and sugarcane farmers face the dismal prospect of being forced off their land to make way for a mining project. Unprotected by the police and ignored by their government, they prepare to face down the invaders on their own.
Their resistance ultimately leads to a remarkable and dangerous stand off between farmers and a band of armed paramilitaries deep in the cloud forest. In a world dominated by news of massacres and terrorism, Under Rich Earth offers a surprising and poignant tale of hope and determination.
