MISN Presents the Toronto Premiere of Gold Fever

Documentary shines spotlight on Canadian­based Goldcorp’s Marlin Mine

TORONTO, ON ­­ Gold Fever, the sobering documentary about the arrival of Goldcorp Inc to a remote
Guatemalan village, will have its Toronto Premiere at the Royal Theatre on September 17. Following
the screening will be a panel discussion with film participant Aniseto López, a community leader
near the mine. Joining him on a panel discussion will be fellow film participant Craig Scott, M.P.
(Toronto­Danforth) and Howard Hu (Dean of the Dalla Lana School of Public Health, University of
Toronto).

The Screening, presented by Mining Injustice Solidarity Network, Amnesty International and Rights
Action, will take place Tuesday, September 17, 7pm at the Royal Theatre on 608 College St, from
7­9PM. Suggested admission is $10 or pay­what­you­can.

Winner of the Rigoberta Mechú Grand Prix at the 2013 Montreal First Peoples Festival, Gold Fever is
a hard­hitting documentary about the destructive and exploitative impacts of transnational mining.

The Toronto premiere precedes Gold Fever’s Global Screening Day initiative, Canada tour, and action
campaign. Global Screening Day on October 17th, the International Day for the Eradication of
Poverty, will provide an opportunity for communities to coordinate film screenings big and small
around the world. By partnering with NGOs, community groups, campus organizations, churches and
individuals,the action campaign will draw attention to these important issues.
