A frightening vision of the world's insatiable hunger for gold.

Synopsis

On Wall Street, investors push gold prices to record highs, while in Guatemala, Goldcorp Inc. levels ancient mountains. GOLD FEVER witnesses the arrival of Goldcorp Inc to a remote Guatemalan village, San Miguel Ixtahuacán where a new mine now operates. Caught in the crosshairs of a global frenzy for gold, Diodora, Crisanta and Gregoria resist the threat to their ancestral lands in the face of grave consequences. 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.
