About the Documentary
La ilusión de la abundancia (the illusion of abundance) follows three women facing the destructive actions of some of the largest transnational corporations in Latin America. Bertha lives deep in the Lenca indigenous region of Honduras, Carolina is in the middle of a historical mining region in Brazil, and Maxima resists from her house in Peru, next to the world’s second largest gold mine. Despite the distance between them, these women share a common goal: defend the rights and livelihoods of their community, and protect our planet, land, rivers and climate from harmful corporate activities.
