"The Shadow of Gold" Film Screening, Wed 24 June 2020, 6pm - 8pm, £12 (incl welcome drink)

Join us for the second showing of ‘The Shadow of Gold’, a film that takes an unflinching look at how the world’s favourite heavy metal is extracted from the earth.

It explores both sides of the industry: the big-time mining companies that dig deep and lop off mountaintops to extract gold from low-grade ore, and the small-time miners – an estimated 20 million people in the world’s poorest nations – who extract gold by hand, often producing just enough to survive. Filmed in China, Peru, Canada, the U.S., London, Dubai, and the Democratic Republic of Congo, The Shadow of Gold questions the impact of gold mining and the gold trade on our economy, environment and conflicts.

This event is presented in partnership with Fair Luxury.
