Bananaland

Self-shot footage from the houses of farmers in the south of Ecuador, merged with fragments from the narration in 1950’s US documentaries for children about the origins of «bananas» and other propaganda sources are the starting point for this ambiguous film that attempts to rearticulate a painful story. Footage shot in the diorama museum of Guayaquil is also used, depicting the farmers from a Western, colonialist perspective that presents them as heroic sufferers.
