CATAPA presents - from February 14th until March 3rd - DocuLatino III, a Latin American documentary festival. This edition puts forward the problems of the gold mining and oil industry.
While big transnational corporations make lots of profits, countries in the Souts are left with a huge social and ecological mess. Local ecosystems are devastated, rural communities lose their farmland, toxic products poison the drinking water for years. The consequences are desastrous, and often irreversible.
Doculatino promises you an interesting program with touching and sometimes shocking documentaries from Chili, Peru, Educador and Argentina. Every evening we start with a short film, followed by a long documentary, which will be introduced by an expert in the film's subject.
DocuLatino starts on February 14th in Antwerp, goes to Ghent the week of February 21st and Leuven ends the festival from March 1st until March 3rd.
