Rise Beyond Gold film now available online after premier at Wild & Scenic Film Festival!
Our latest film, Rise Beyond Gold, premiered at the flagship Wild & Scenic Film Festival. We are honored to be a part of this amazing festival, 'where activism gets inspired,' in its first year being completely online. The festival took place January 14 - 24, 2021.
Rise Beyond Gold is about a proposal to re-open the Idaho Maryland Mine in Nevada County, CA. The community faces a foreign corporation that would take the gold from under their property and leave a toxic legacy behind.
Rise Beyond Gold also raises bigger questions for the world at large. Why do we desire gold, and ultimately, is it worth it?
Standing Rock Sioux Tribe declared victory after a federal court ruling that the Dakota Access Pipeline must be shut down and drained until a full Environmental Impact Statement is written. This decision countered the industry proposal to double the volume of petroleum exported. The current pipeline has leaked at least 11 times since it was built in 2017. Energy Transfer Partners is challenging the decision.
New pipeline, port, rail and other petroleum export infrastructure projects were pushed through the regulatory process under the cloak of the COVID-19 pandemic under the Trump Administration. While we are told these projects are going to bring energy independence to the United States, in reality they are all designed to export our natural resources.
