No Rest. No Haste.

Buenos Aires, December 2012. A hot Christmas is only a few days away. Last purchases are made. Shimmering heat is all over the city and above the always bustling traffic. The Federal Parliament makes its final decisions before the holidays. The Police outside is dozing in indifference. All of a sudden hundreds of indigenous people flow through the urban canyons towards the city center. The old, the young, the women, and the men first squad the main road in front of Parliament, then they take over all side streets, block all the traffic. Urban groups join them. Together they transform the streets into colorful dancing courses and they send their negotiators in the Congreso.

The home of the Indigenous is almost a thousand miles away. It is another Argentina, a forgotten one. It is an Argentina without skyscrapers, TV and hospitals. It is the Argentina of the dusty scrubland of the north. But home is always home, is it? The home of the indigenous people is under threat. Because GM seeds, Herbicides and chemical fertilizers have now made the soybean cultivation profitable even in the barren northern regions and they have turned the country into an object of speculation by Monsanto & Co.

Just as in the beginning of the colonial history of the country, once again the indigenous are supposed to recede. But this time everything is different. They do not recede. They resist. It is a struggle of now twenty years in within not only the land grabbers are defeated but moreover the indigenous people have begun to replace state power in their territories by egalitarian structures new to the globe. They build wells, solar systems, their own schools and now even a university that reinvents the teaching and the learning. In the fight against the multinational agribusinesses the Campesin@s globalize hope for all of us.

“No Rest. No Haste.” (Documentary, ARG /Germany, 60 min, English subtitles, 16:9.) is a participatory project of Kameradists. The interviews were based on numerous messages from people from the Federal Republic to the indigenous people. They arose as reactions to our thematically related and first film “Sachamanta“. | “No Rest. No Haste.” would not exist without the financial, logistical and moral support for the project “Espejo“of more than one hundred people, foundations and small businesses, which are recognized in the credits of the film. From the project “Espejo” also sprang the short film “Tincunacuy”, showing the return of the film “Sachamanta” to the people, that it portraits. “Tincunacuy” can be watched online under this link. The Kameradists are a free association for documentary filmmaking and documentary photography with a critical awareness of politics and society.

  2. I would love to see this film. I wonder where I could view it.

    • Hi Joanna Stockton, thank you for your comment. It is very easy to view/see the movie. All it takes is someone, maybe you, to organize a public screening. It can be big or small. It can be at any place and any time. It could be in a school or in a university or in the local cinema. It could even be just someones backyard. Screening the movie is for free if there is no income generated from the event. The only real condition is: it has to be a public event.

      You could organize it yourself or you could talk to people that you judge to be the right ones to go ahead with it. If you’re ready, we will send to you a link and a code with it, that lets you download a zip-file. The File includes the movie with english subtitles, a trailer and a whole bunch of promotion material in english – that you may use in any matter useful for promoting the public screening.

      In advance we can send to you a “online-screener” – as we krauts call it – that allows you to see the movie in order to help you to form a decision whether you want to show it to other people.

      In any case it would very cool of you to share this information with other people on the net and in reality …. so that even If you are not able to organize a screening at the time, other people will hear of the possibility to so….

      But of course we would be more than happy if you go ahead and get things going….Just let us know how it should be… All the best from Berlin,
      Mark from the “Kameradists”

  4. Hello, I just read your comment to Joanna above. Please could you send the link so I can preview it. Thank you.

  5. I will send you a mail. You are welcome.

  6. ich möchte den Film gerne mit meiner Urban-Gardening-Gruppe in Schwäbisch Hall anschauen. Wir würden für den Film in der lokalen Presse und auf Plakaten in der Stadt werben.
    Bitte schickt uns die entsprechenden links.

    vielen Dank,
    herzliche Grüße

  7. Thank you for the documentary I could watch today in Dresden with die Linke and thank you to show us there are real possibilities to change our system and organise an other way of life. I come from France and I wich it would be possible to share this documentary in french for the french speaking countries.
    Thank you!

    • ‎Dear Thomas! Thank you for giving feedback. ‎So far we only have a version of the movie with english subtitles while the french subtitles exist in some state of early rough draft.

      The good news is, that it is probably not too hard a task to write functional french subtitles as long as there would be some native french speaker willing to take over the task – because the german and the english subtitles come in a so called SRT-File, that can be loaded into a freeware subtitle software that allows rather quick translation. The software also guides the user concerning lenght and duration auf subtitles.

      The thing ist: neather of us in the group knows enough french to go ahead and get it done…

      (…) I will send you a mail concerning everything else.

Me gustaría que me lo mandaran y tal vez proyectarlo públicamente también.
