Join us for the UK premiere of ‘The Shadow of Gold’, a film that takes an unflinching look at how the world’s favourite heavy metal is extracted from the earth.
It explores both sides of the industry: the big-time mining companies that dig deep and lop off mountaintops to extract gold from low-grade ore, and the small-time miners – an estimated 20 million people in the world’s poorest nations – who extract gold by hand, often producing just enough to survive.
Filmed in China, Peru, Canada, the U.S., London, Dubai, and the Democratic Republic of Congo, The Shadow of Gold questions the impact of gold mining and the gold trade on our economy, environment and conflicts.
The film starts at 6.15pm and will be followed by a question and answer session with members and associates of sustainable practice advocates Fair Luxury.
