• Selkirk College, Room 2
Documentary film screening part of a worldwide discussion on mining harms.
On Monday, Oct. 21, at 7 p.m., Grand Forks will join dozens of communities worldwide to screen Gold Fever, an “eye-opening and inspiring” documentary about the arrival of Goldcorp Inc to a remote Guatemalan village.
The screening, will take place at Selkirk College, Room 2. Admission is by donation and the public is welcome.
Gold Fever will shine a light on the harms to health, community and environment brought by transnational industrial mining and the connections to our own communities.
As part of a global action, the film showing is intended to raise visibility of these issues in Grand Forks and show the community’s support, alongside dozens of other communities worldwide.
Winner of the Rigoberta Menchú Grand Prix at the 2013 Montreal First Peoples Festival, Gold Fever is a hard-hitting documentary about three women resisting a transnational gold mine in their community.
Viewing the film, as part of Global Screening Day, is an opportunity to both learn about and discuss the issues, and to show solidarity with people—like Diodora, Crisanta, and Gregoria—experiencing globalized resource extraction.
Dozens of groups, large and small, will screen Gold Fever around the world on Thursday, Oct. 17. For a map and details of the campaign visit: www.goldfevermovie.com/screening-day.
