  • Year2018

At the center of the Earth there is a black tree, those who can reach it may be able to talk to the trees, send messages through birds and heal curses. Martín is a goat breeder from a Qom community called Santo Domingo. His community is threatened by agro-livestock companies which are taking over their territory. Since a while his goats have been dying and he doesn’t know why. In between assemblies and roadblocks, Martín must decide whether to respond to the black tree’s call or not.
