The curse of the subterranean Eldorado

Under the Colombian town of Marmato lies a vast supply of gold. It is estimated to be worth a whopping $20 billion. A Canadian mining company has bought the exclusive rights to mine the gold in this area. There's only one big obstacle: The gold lies directly beneath the homes of Marmato's 10.000 citizens. Based on five years of documentation, MARMATO tells the story of a poor community's harsh encounter with the global mineral industry.
