Spanish Film Festival: This Stolen Country of Mine
Tuesday, Oct. 3, 7-9:30 p.m.
This Stolen Country of Mine.
Two Ecuadorian men fight against China’s influence in their nation. Eco-activist Paúl Jarrín Mosquera leads indigenous resistance against land exploitation, while investigative journalist Fernando Villavicencio (a presidential candidate recently assassinated) exposes corruption and secret China-Ecuador contracts. In Marc Weise’s expose, both men battle for their country’s freedom against corruption, greed, and colonization.
