A documentary produced by the audiovisual collective, Ojo de Treile, shows how industrial monoculture plantations in southern Chile have been causing mega-droughts and voracious forest fires.

The plantation and pulp industries have been supported by government policies in Chile, and they continue to expand their detrimental impacts. Watch the video in Spanish here.
