After Memoria del Saqueo, La Dignidad de los Nadies, Argentina Latente and La Próxima Estación, Tierra Sublevada completes a portrayal of contemporary Argentina. It is a story divided in two independent parts: Oro Impuro (Impure Gold) and Oro Negro (Black Gold), regarding the exploitation and plundering of mineral resources –metals and hydrocarbons– and the battle against growing contamination. In the nineties, neoliberal policies gave oil and mining leases to corporations. These companies used toxic materials and dangerous extraction methods that polluted underground water reservoirs and the environment in general. Locals reacted to this abuse: protests and environmental assemblies gave birth to a new consciousness of saving wildlife and protecting mineral resources.
