Winner of the Rigoberta Menchú Grand Prix at the 2013 Montreal First Peoples Festival, "Gold Fever" is a hard-hitting documentary about the destructive and exploitative impacts of transnational mining in Guatemala.

For the rich and powerful gold is one more source of great wealth, but for the people living near a gold mine in Guatemala’s highlands, gold represents oppression, intimidation, pollution and murder. With the rising price of gold, the mine’s owner, Goldcorp, posts record profits, while courageous indigenous Guatemalan women lead resistance to the mine’s destructive impact on their community. (2013, 84 min.)
