Fairtrade Film Screening: Dirty Gold War

Tuesday, 27 February 2018 - 8:00pm
 
DIRTY GOLD WAR (2015) 
Film Screening organised by Fairtrade Preston
 
Dirty Gold War is a trip behind the scenes of a thriving industry. On one side, the displays of luxury goods; on the other, the appalling conditions of those cursed by dirty gold. A film that changes the viewer’s perception of this business and contributes to the fight for responsible ethics in gold.
 
 
From mine to window display, extreme misery to luxury brands and big banks, we follow the course of the “gold trail”. From South America to Switzerland, the country that refines and fashions the major part of the world’s dirty gold into bars.
 
This film puts a little-known reality into perspective and reveals important issues about a gold rush that is continuing in the 21st century, in silence and indifference, regardless of the interests of indigenous peoples. The film also follows actors who are striving for change and trying to transform this industry.
 
DIRTY GOLD WAR is screened at The Continental on Tuesday 27th February 2018. Doors are at 8pm. 
 
Tickets are £5, either advance or on the door. 
Available online from SEE Tickets or in person from The Continental's bar (01772 499 425)
