THE MIRACLE OF ALMERIA

director: Moon Blaisse en Thomas Bellinck, in production | docu, Sony F3, 2:1

A series of documentaries in a post-apocalyptic landscape where are all European problems seem to meet in a chocking way. Here, in the most warm and dry place of Spain, we find one of the bigest vegetable gardens of Europe; a garden that suplies us daily with fruit and vegetables at very low prices. On satelite this regions looks like a snowed mountain landscape. But when zoomed in, the white spot reveiles 46.000 hectare of white plastic. This plastic sea on the southern border of Europe forms the daily bizar playground of a hudge battle between globe forces and mass movemets, a hidden spot where the biggest issues of Europe continue to build up. Our economical crisis and our agriculture and ecological crisis meet here in a chokking way.
