CINEMA AND HUMAN RIGHTS: Marmato

Marmato

Columbia // Mark Grieco // Documentary // 88 min // OmeU

If Colombia is the focal point of the new global gold rush then Marmato, a mining town with over 500 years of history, is the new frontier. In its mountain there are $20 billion dollars in gold, but its 8,000 inhabitants are at risk of being displaced by an open-pit mining project. MARMATO chronicles how the townspeople confront a Canadian mining company that wants the gold beneath their homes. Filmed over the course of 6 years, MARMATO is a canvas of magic realism and the confrontation with globalized mining.

The screening will be followed by a Q&A session with Teresa Dolezal and Manfred Nowak (University of Vienna, Ludwig Boltzmann Institute of Human Rights). Presentation by: Sandra Benecchi (University of Vienna, Research Centre Human Rights)
