LAND IN REVOLT: IMPURE GOLD

Fernando E. Solanas / AR / 2009 / 92 ' / Spanish / S.T. English

A breathtaking road trip exposing the power and greed of Canadian mining company Barrick Gold in Argentina.

Synopsis:

Impure Gold is the first instalment of the environmental project by the ever-activist Argentine filmmaker Fernando Solanas tackling the plundering of underground resources and the ensuing contamination ending with Black Gold. Portraying stark reality full of scams, miseries, and corruption, Solanas targets the mining industry and open-air cyanide or explosives extraction of minerals and metals at the northeast of Argentina, and observes the reaction of the local public. The extraction of resources is not the only loot –royalties and taxes create another unjust wealth. Impure Gold is a film told by its protagonists: engineers, farmers, indigenes, environmentalists, inhabitants who resist.

Thank you for reading this story...

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all. But media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our only supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help.

If everyone who visits rabble and likes it chipped in a couple of dollars per month, our future would be much more secure and we could do much more: like the things our readers tell us they want to see more of: more staff reporters and more work to complete the upgrade of our website.

We’re asking if you could make a donation, right now, to set rabble on solid footing in 2017.
