Winner of the Rigoberta Menchú Grand Prix at the 2013 Montreal First Peoples Festival, Gold Fever is a hard-hitting documentary about three women resisting a transnational gold mine in their community. Gold Fever documents the impact of a massive Canadian gold mine on a remote Mayan community in Guatemala’s breathtaking highlands. 500 years after the colonization of Guatemala, Mayan community members find themselves in the midst of another struggle to protect their rights, this time as ‘stakeholders’ in a competitive globalized economy.
