Filming Babassu farmers Brazil, 2013

24I love this shot. Paul had wandered off to get a spare battery and we were getting ready to film an interview with some of the Babassu ladies in Tocatins State, Brazil. These women are hands down simply amazing, they are often violently persecuted by the big land owners and the agriculturalists who are turning Brazil into large monoculture plantations of soya and beef farms. However they have stood resiliently together, forming local co-operatives and after years of struggle have managed to gain rights to their old and unique farming practices.
