No Haste." – a movie about the battle over the land between the indigenous population of Argentina and transnational agribusinesses. In 2012, they released the full feature documentary, "Sachamanta", which deals with community radio stations in northern Argentina and their role in defending the land of the indigenous communities against land grabbing. Both of these films were produced with a participatory approach.
