Peru is a country with huge mineral deposits that has based its economic model primarily around the extraction of those minerals. As a result, it is home to some of the largest transnational mining companies in the world. Peru is also one of

the most vulnerable countries in the world to the effects of climate change, and has been suffering from an acute water crisis for years. Of the 31 million people living in Peru today, over 3 million lack access to safe water. This documentary produced by the environmental network Red Muqui brings to the fore the human stories at the centre of this fateful paradox. The film provides evidence of the extreme vulnerability of water sources and ecosystems in Peru, showing how the pollution produced by mining impacts not only on the environment but on the lives who live in this ‘mining country’. The screening will be followed by a Q&A session.
