Synopsis
THIS STOLEN COUNTRY OF MINE takes us to Latin America, to a country with immense natural resources, pristine nature and a corrupt leadership: Ecuador.
The film follows Paul Jarrin, leader of the indigenous resistance against their homeland's exploitation. Meanwhile, China uses the Ecuadorian government to turn the country into one of its new colonies. 
When journalist Fernando Villavicencio exposes these plots and gets access to the contracts between China and Ecuador, the government wants him silenced too. Both men are fighting for freedom in this battle against a superpower.



"...Alva Noto's music subtly lends intense power to the struggle of a mountain village, delicately and precisely accentuating the film's disturbing subject matter – and often bringing us closer than we'd like." [Jury German Documentary Film Music Award]
