synopsis

Javier Chocobar was shot dead fighting the removal of his indigenous community from their ancestral land in Argentina. His death appeared in a video on YouTube. This documentary unravels the 500 years of “reason” that led to this shooting, both with a gun and a camera, and contextualizes it in the system of land tenure that emerged across Latin America.

The death of an indigenous land rights activist in Argentina is recorded by his killers and posted on YouTube. This film unravels both the story and the history.
