What links Italian textiles magnate Luciano Benetton to the small Mapuche community of the Curiñanco-Nahuelquir ? This is the fight that has opposed for years the Mapuche Indians to the Benetton Empire, who wants to seize their ancestral lands in Patagonia. This land of Patagonia emerges on stage : Mountain ranges, deserts, forests and imaginary cities… The two interpreters retrace the history of this region of Argentina with, as a highlight, the process of recovery of ancestral lands sold to foreign powers. Tierras del Sud, the second part of the documentary trilogy PACÍFICO, denounces the development of new forms of colonialism and the ensuing atrocities to highlight the Mapuche resistance against this oppression. For the Mapuche people, present for centuries, property does not exist. Man belongs to the earth and not the other way around.
