'Marmato' in Groningen
Tonight at 21.00 hrs at Vera Zienama Groningen, the documentary Marmato will be screened, instead of the film Difret. The Colombian town of Marmato is home to one of the biggest gold reserves in the world. The inhabitants have dug for the gold themselves to make a living. But the indigenous people risk being displaced now that the government has sold the mines to a large corporation. Extraordinarily beautiful documentary about globalisation and gold fever versus a decent existence.
