La Mina is the story of a community’s pursuit of justice told within the context of a mine’s 70-year history in Guatemala. This historical window, from the 1950s until now, is examined through an unfolding legal case brought by 13 Maya people to Canada, where they have charged the mine’s owners with mass rape, shooting and murder. Through generations and across continents, La Mina is the story of a global and systemic crisis of corruption.
Featuring Angelica Choc and the women of Lote 8, German Chub, Grahame Russell, Murray Klippenstein and Cory Wanless.
