The ongoing aftermath of colonialism and its collusion with capitalism continues in every corner of the world. The violent rupture of people from their land has occurred through hundreds of years of empires continuing to profit from the destruction and erasure of Indigenous peoples from the Bering Sea to the mountains of the Democratic Republic of the Congo. The title of this program is borrowed from the eponymous phrase, “Há terra!” in Ana Vaz’s film, playing on the double entendre that “there is land!” if you keep going, and to deprive no one of a home when “there is land!”
