Film Title : Gold of Cajamarca
Duration : 00:15:48 Filmmaker : Alexandre Regol Theme : Mining, Agriculture
Synopsis : A short handcrafted 16mm documentary about the fights against one of Colombia’s biggest open-sky goldmine projects. A black and white ballad through Tolima’s green mountains, in Colombian Andes, talking to Cajamarca’s valley inhabitants. On the surface, green fertile lands and peaceful agriculture. But hidden under the ground, invisible fields of gold coveted by a multinational company could reshape this whole world. Sometimes with just their voices, sometimes accepting to show their faces, Cajamarca’s workers depict different aspects of their lives and the threat of the open-sky goldmine project they face, while their images slightly tend to disappear.
