Death by a Thousand Cuts

.

In DEATH BY A THOUSAND CUTS, Eligio Eloy Vargas, alias Melaneo, a Dominican Park Ranger in the Sierra de Bahoruco National Park was found brutally murdered by machete. At the time, he was believed to have been on patrol investigating an illegal charcoal production site often run by Haitians coming across the border into protected Dominican forests. This murder becomes the metaphor for the larger story of increasing tension between Haiti and the Dominican Republic over illicit charcoal exploitation and mass deforestation.

Press

  • "Beautifully filmed, sensitively handled… it tells a story being played out across the globe"
    Julia Alvarez
  • Death by a Thousand Cuts is a new and visceral documentary about the violent struggles along the border of the Dominican Republic and Haiti...Some of the underlying issues in the film should feel familiar to the peoples of the world. Issues surrounding borders, security, jobs and poverty are universal.
    Hollywood Soapbox
    John Soltes
  • Como en muchos conflictos globales por los recursos naturales, la lucha por la supervivencia produce chivos expiatorios, xenofobia y enfrentamientos entre las comunidades, en este caso marcados por las políticas migratorias aprobadas por la República Dominicana en los últimos años. Estos enfrentamientos se han convertidos en un emblema de la lucha por los recursos a nivel nacional y global, hechos, que cuándo se llevan a escenarios extremos, pueden producir el ciclo persistente de un conflicto étnico-civil y violencia a nivel internacional.
