► 2 July, 2019 #Tuesdaytalks featuring Filmmakers Wasil and Leopold
ELDORADO – The Struggle for Skouries is an urgent documentary chronicling the struggle against environmental destruction through high-risk gold mining at Europe’s largest mining project located in Northern Greece. Chronicling the resistance against high-risk gold extraction and the criminalization of the anti-mining movement by the Greek government, it is an urgent document of neoliberal ideals and human rights abuses playing out in one of the most crisis-ridden countries of Europe.
With a unique access to long-term residents and extensive archive material, the film tells the stories of activists criminalized for their opposition to the mining project and documents the high price of gold for the environment and human rights in Greece.
After the screening, we will have a discussion with the film-makers.
Leopold Helbich, born 1990 in Vienna, is a german-austrian writer and filmmaker whose work traverses the line between philosophy and artistic practice. He works across the fields new-media, theatre, writing, and documentary film on topics concerning technology, politics, and society.
Wasil Schauseil, born 1988, works in Berlin a freelance journalist, photographer and tutor at Humboldt University. His work is dedicated to exposing and challenging the firm grip of neoliberal dogma and authoritarian developments across the world. His work on ELDORADO was carried by this intention.
