Casado´s Legacy

Valentina Bonifacio
50 minutes


The film is about the struggle of the Maskoy, a Paraguayan indigenous people, to repossess the lands of which they were dispossessed by a tannin factory in the early twentieth century.

For 100 years Maskoy people worked in Carlos Casado's tannin factory. The factory, which had been founded on their land, based its production on the exploitation of local natural resources. After exploiting the territory, the company closed the factory and sold the land.

For Maskoy people who fought against the company to repossess their former territory, Casado's legacy is a land without food. On this land, they have to rebuild their life, and in doing so, have to come to terms with their past and their dreams.
