In Production

In this arresting story of collective resistance, Indigenous communities in rural Mexico take up arms in order to defend their land against drug traffickers.


A group displaced by narco-violence organize themselves to confront, through an armed-uprising, the drug cartel that for several years now has been terrorizing their community. RECUPERANDO EL PARAÍSO is a confidential gaze to the struggle of an indigenous community for surviving and defending their land in the midst of a violent context that threatens a large area of the Mexican territory.
