FILM ON:

Greenland's vast natural resources, ranging from oil and gas to uranium, rare earth and iron ore, have remained largely inaccessible under thick layers of ice, making them too difficult and expensive to extract. But with a receding ice sheet and new transport routes opening through the Northwest Passage these prized materials have now placed Greenland at the threshold of a potential commodities boom that could see the territory transformed. This potentially paves the way for companies like th... more

It's a personal story, as the author herself is the film’s main character. She becomes pregnant for the first time at the age of 35. In parallel with the main character’s somewhat Borat-lik... more

Yet all this comes at a price. Communities – most often those found in the forest – are often violently expelled from their lands in the wake of this uncontrolled scramble to plant soy.

“Gabes Labess” (All is well in Gabes) questions current development models by focusing on the Oasis of Gabes, the only coastal oasis in the world. What was once considered "The Paradise of the World" has been transformed into an economic, social, and ecological catastrophe by the construction, in the 1970s, of an industrial chemical complex that has deprived local farmers of their water, arable land, economic well-being, and personal dignity. “Gabes Labess” is a cry of alarm, a cal... more
