1 x 60/ 1 x 90 minutes

An indigenous woman from the Peruvian Andres who cannot read or write, stands up to the largest gold producer in the world, US-based Newmont Mining Corporation. Maxima is fearlessly fighting to stop a multi-billion dollar mining project launched by Newmont and partially funded by the World Bank. This project would forever destroy and contaminate critical water and land ecosystems. But without Maxima’s land, the project is not possible. A land dispute quickly turns into a landmark case of human rights abuse. Throughout Maxima’s fight for justice we reveal the mechanics of how a transnational corporation manages to get away with human rights and environmental crimes, the role of the World Bank and the resilience of one woman who refuses to back down.
