Worth Dying For?

Berta Cáceres, one of the most well-known land and environmental campaigners in Honduras and around the world, and winner of the International Goldman Prize for the Environment, was brutally murdered in her home in 2016. 

More people in Honduras are killed per capita than anywhere else in the world for defending the land and more than 80 percent of cases go unsolved.

“Worth Dying For?” explores the aftermath of the murder of Berta Caceres and the extraordinary epidemic of death sweeping land rights activists in Honduras. The film includes interviews with the Caceres family, carrying on the legacy of Berta and COPINH; Miriam Miranda, leader of the Black Fraternal Organisation of Honduras (OFRANEH); Juan Jimenez, the head of the new anti-corruption agency MACCIH and the Human Rights Ministry of the Honduran Government.
