THE IMPACTS OF FORESTATION IN URUGUAY
Almost a million hectares of Uruguayan land have been forested through the creation of plantations. This documentary exposes the main environmental, social, economic and political impacts of forestation.
Through the testimonies of people directly affected by it - such as rural workers, farmers and local residents - we can see the devastation caused by forestation as it continues to gain more territory in different Latin American countries.
