Notes: Summary: Examines the cultural, economic and environmental impact of a transnational gold mining operation on a remote farming community in northeastern Guinea. Our two guides, the village chief and the head engineer of the mine, illustrate in telling detail the contrasting lifestyles and worldviews of global corporations and local, pre-industrial societies. Always in the background is the military regime of president Lansana Conté, in power since 1984, which granted the concession to the company. The film asks: who benefits when foreign extractive industries are invited to develop a country's natural resources? -- container
