A group of queer activists in the north of Colombia uses fearless performance art and direct action to protest the region’s largest coal mine. Visually lush vignettes are punctuated with urgent hand-held moments of action, reflecting the care and chaos the protestors must hold simultaneously in the fight to save their region from ecological disaster.
