Peru is nowadays marked by two opposing developments. On the one hand the 𝗿𝗲𝘀𝗼𝘂𝗿𝗰𝗲𝘀 industries are ever-growing, causing environmental damage all over 𝗣𝗲𝗿𝘂. The extraction of natural resources, like oil and metals, goes hand in hand with pollution of water, soil and air, which leaves our Mother Earth wounded and creates huge problems for indigenous, peasants and other rural communities. On the other hand, the 𝗿𝗲𝘀𝗶𝘀𝘁𝗮𝗻𝗰𝗲 against these industries and resource projects is stronger than ever. All over Peru people stand up to protect their rights and territories from these destructive industries.
In this 𝗗𝗼𝗰𝘂𝗹𝗮𝘁𝗶𝗻𝗼 𝗱𝗼𝗰𝘂𝗺𝗲𝗻𝘁𝗮𝗿𝘆 𝘀𝗲𝗿𝗶𝗲𝘀 we zoom in on two such struggles, one located in Cajamarca, in the Peruvian Andes, and the second one in Iquitos, in the Peruvian Amazon.
We welcome you on the 𝟭𝟮𝘁𝗵 & 𝟭𝟵𝘁𝗵 𝗼𝗳 𝗡𝗼𝘃𝗲𝗺𝗯𝗲𝗿 2020 to watch with us 𝘁𝘄𝗼 𝘃𝗲𝗿𝘆 𝗱𝗶𝗳𝗳𝗲𝗿𝗲𝗻𝘁 𝘀𝘁𝗼𝗿𝗶𝗲𝘀 on Resources and Resistance in Peru. At both movie screenings we will be accompanied by 𝗲𝘅𝗽𝗲𝗿𝘁𝘀 who will give a short introduction and will be available for a Q&A afterwards.

The department of Cajamarca is the scenery of intense and growing conflicts between small farmer communities and multinational mining companies. An organised resistance builds up but is confronted by fierce repression. The touching documentary presents the raw reality of small-scale farmers who are faced with one of the biggest corruption scandals in Peru.
This documentary is the result of a collaboration between Kolinoh´s Producciones and Plataforma Interinstitucional Celendina (PIC).
