2994 Douglas St, BCGEU Hall
Film by Ernesto Cabellos and Stephanie Boyd with subtitles.
This award-winning documentary film depicts the five-year struggle of local leaders from an agricultural community in northern Peru, as they oppose their government’s concession of land to Manhattan Minerals Corp., a Canadian mining corporation. It exposes a development model that promotes foreign investment in the mining sector at the expense of people’s health, rights, and environmental damages.
