La ilusión de la abundacia
Belgium/Colombia,  59 min. 202
Director: Erika González Martinez and Matthieu Lietaert

 Bertha, Carolina and Maxima’ stories are of tireless environmental resistance. They keep up the fight for protecting nature even when their life is at risk.
Despite a deeply unbalanced game, these three women share a common goal: they are leading today's fight against modern corporate conquistadors. Whereas governments and corporations are trapped in a global race to get the cheapest raw materials, Bertha, Carolina and Maxima tell us a story of tireless courage: how to keep fighting to protect nature when your life is at risk? When police repression, corporate harassment, injuries or even death threats are part of your daily routine?
THE ILLUSION OF ABUNDANCE is not only a film about those who pay the high price of ‘development’, it is above all a film about the globalization of their environmental resistance and their conviction to hunt down transnational corporations, wherever they hide.
