The documentary follows three indigenous communities in the Bolivian highlands take on the mining companies polluting their water. They demand compensation and full information, but the miners have the government’s backing and can operate with apparent impunity. A story of resistance, courage, and the fight for environmental justice.
After the screening, writer and filmmaker Rachel Visscher will talk to director Ana Llacer and Sergio Salinas Rodríguez, associate professor at IHE Delft. The public will also have the opportunity to ask questions to the guests.
