‘Gold Fever’ documentary to be screened in Woodstock

WOODSTOCK – On Monday, Woodstock will join dozens of communities worldwide to screen “Gold Fever,” a documentary about the arrival of Goldcorp Inc. to a remote Guatemalan village. 

The screening, presented by U.S.-El Salvador Sister Cities/Friends of Chilama, will be at 7 p.m. Monday in the meeting room at the Woodstock Public Library, 414 W. Judd St.

The public is welcome and admission is free.

Tax-deductible donations to U.S.-El Salvador Sister Cities work on mining resistance will be accepted. There will be a discussion after the screening of the film, which is 55 minutes long.

“We believe that resource extraction is an underreported issue,” said Ann Legg of Friends of Chilama. “By hosting a screening of ‘Gold Fever’ as part of Global Screening Day, we hope to shine a light on the harms to health, community and environment brought by transnational industrial mining and the connections to our own communities.”

Winner of the Rigoberta Menchú Grand Prix at the 2013 Montreal First Peoples Festival, “Gold Fever” is a documentary about three women resisting a transnational gold mine in their community.

For information, contact Legg at 815-338-4838 or email her at aglegg@sbcglobal.net.
