We are often asked “What Can I Do?” We invite you to host a screening of Gold Fever. Screening Gold Fever is not just about watching a film, it’s an action, an opportunity to screen the film alongside NGOs, community groups, campus organizations, churches and others in solidarity with people—like Diodora, Crisanta, and Gregoria—experiencing globalized resource extraction first hand. To date, over 200 communities worldwide—from New York City to New Zealand, Berlin to Bolivia—have screened the film.
