About the film:

Even though the Government expelled them from their lands in the name of ecologic preservation 40 years ago, a group of panners keep searching the rivers for gold, in Costa Rica's jungle. Their living as modern pariahs shows their fight for survivance, and questions the country's conservationist fame.

A panel discussion with filmmaker Alvaro Torres Crespo will follow the screening. Moderated by Yoruba Richen.
