SYNOPSIS

 

Frontera Invisible is the true story of communities trapped in the middle of the world’s longest war, in which big landowners’ rush for palm oil to produce ‘green’ fuel has displaced peasant farmers and indigenous people. It has destroyed natural habitats and concentrated land in the hands of the rich.

 

One part environmental documentary and one part social research through victims’ testimonials, Frontera Invisible gives voice to the local communities that are fighting hard to reclaim their land while exposing the major pitfalls of biofuels policy.

 

In Colombia the government signed a peace deal with rebel group FARC which ended 60 years of armed conflict. A war that has displaced more people than the entire population of Denmark. Meanwhile, the government plans to keep planting palm to supply Colombia and Europe with ‘biodiesel’. Will peace return the land to its true owners or merely hand it over to Big Agribusiness?

Experience:

 

Nico is the director of communications for Transport & Environment, Europe’s leading NGO campaigning for cleaner transport and fuels. A tireless storyteller, Nico has told many stories in written and visual form. But Frontera Invisible is his first incursion on film documentary. He has been communicating on the biofuels business since 2010 while consulting a top biofuels producer for global PR firm Weber Shandwick. After joining Transport & Environment, Nico campaigned extensively on the social and environmental impact of biofuels. While digging deeper in the matter, Nico developed the idea of the new biofuels frontiers, beyond the well-documented cases of deforestation and peatland drainage in Indonesia and Malaysia. That was the first step of a journey that took Gancho and Transport & Environment to Colombia. Other frontiers Nico would love to explore are: Perú, Congo, Papua New Guinea, among others.

 

Animated videos Nico co-directed:

 

– Biofuels – The Butterfly Effect
– Exposed! See how T&E’s cleaning up transport
– Stop the oil waste from europe’s cars
