We at Whisper Productions have had the incredible privilege to partner with our friends at Give Us Names and tell the story of Abelardo Joya and his family.
Abelardo is a farmer who grew yucca, plantains, and cocoa (what you make chocolate from). One day he was forced to leave his farm because he could no longer grow anything on his land and could not provide for his family. This was all thanks to the United States tax dollars at work with its policy called Plan Colombia.
Plan Colombia's goal is to slow the production of Coca (what you make cocaine from) by dropping an herbicide in attempts to kill the coca. In our documentary we show how that only increases coca production and harms innocent families such as Abelardo's who want nothing to do with growing coca.
Also special thanks to the guys at coloramainc.com for an amazing job correcting color for this trailer. Please check them out.
