About the Film
In Honduras, the most dangerous country in the world to be a land defender, Berta Cáceres’ death has not silenced the many campesinxs fighting for justice and Indigenous Sovereignty. They mourn Berta’s assassination with powerful chants of ‘Berta Didn’t Die, She Multiplied!’ This documentary will show the Indigenous Lenca and Afro-Indigenous Garifuna people of Honduras in their struggle against capitalism, patriarchy, racism and homophobia. The insidious agents of the local oligarchy, the World Bank, and North American corporations continue to kill but that will not stop the social movements. From Flint to Standing Rock to Honduras, the water is sacred and the power is in the people.
