The Land of Present Time
On the trail of Bernhard Förster, the founder of the colony Nueva Germania in 1887 in Paraguay.
Having discovered the existence of a former Aryan colony – founded in 1887 in the middle of the Paraguayan jungle by a certain Doctor Förster and his wife, Elisabeth Nietzsche, sister of the renowned philosopher – Philippe Prouff decided to visit the place for himself to check out the remains of this nauseating project and meet any eventual descendants of the first colonists. This serves as the departure point of an investigation that paints the picture of a little-known country which has a painful past and an uncertain future, and which seemingly only lives in the present time.
