Event description: 

The Council on Latin American and Iberian Studies presents a film screening: 

“The Land of Azaba.”

Followed by a Q&A with the film director Greta Schiller, an Emmy-Award-winning veteran documentary filmmaker based in New York, and Carlos Sanchez, the film protagonist and President of Fundación Naturaleza y Hombre.

The Land of Azaba is a Spanish-language film set in Western Spain that closely observes the largest land preservation and ecological restoration project in Europe.

It is the first feature documentary on the subject of ecological restoration, and it is set in one of the world’s first “hot spots” for increasing and maintaining bio-diversity, Campanarios de Azaba Nature Reserve in Western Spain. The Land of Azaba immerses the viewer in a magical world where humans and wildlife work together to restore the largest remaining tract of wild nature in Western Europe.
