Tesoro de Corcoesto (Corcoesto’s Treasure) documents the struggle of communities in Galicia against plans to mine gold in their home lands.
Featuring the testimonies of people involved in the struggle and different experts, the film provides an insight into what makes for a powerful resistance process.
The local Galician Government has now definitively cancelled the planned mine. The official story is that this is because the company involved did not meet the financial requirements imposed upon them. But in truth, the project was stopped by local peoples’ large scale and sustained resistance.
