Story

Indonesian filmmakers explore why their country has so many land conflicts. As they film the protests of communities against palm oil companies and real estate developers taking their land, they find that the roots of these conflicts go back to Indonesia’s colonial past. When in the 19th century the Dutch colonial rulers claimed ownership over most of Indonesia’s land, they weakened the land rights of ordinary Indonesians. This colonial inheritance continues to generate conflicts. As the land ownership of ordinary Indonesians remains restricted, Indonesia’s government can hand out their land to companies. When companies move in to seize their land for plantations or real estate projects, communities try to resist. Facing considerable police repression, their demonstrations and road blockades tend to fail. Yet after long struggles some communities manage to recover their land. In doing so they show an alternative path to economic development.
