SYNOPSIS

During 7 years, I filmed in an immersive way a group of peasants fighting against the authorities which used the pretext to build an Ecological Parc in order to grab their land. Will they share the same fate of 5 billions of Chinese peasants expropriated yearly?

.

Pendant sept ans, j'ai filmé en immersion un groupe de paysans en lutte contre les autorités locales, qui ont utilisé le prétexte de la construction d'un Parc écologique pour exproprier leurs terres. Vont-ils suivre le même destin que les quelques cinq millions de paysans expropriés chaque année en Chine ?
