A powerful documentary that exposes the direct connection between the long history of U.S. intervention in Latin America and the immigration crisis we face today. From the territorial expansionist policies that decimated the young economies of Mexico, Puerto Rico and Cuba, to the covert operations that imposed oppressive military regimes in the Dominican Republic, Guatemala, Nicaragua and El Salvador, "Harvest of Empire" provides an unflinching look at the origins of the growing Latino presence in the United States.

Dirty Gold War

Dirty Gold War

A fable about the gold industry, an excursion behind the scenes of this very prosperous sector. On one end of the spectrum, there are the sparkling displays in jewellery shop windows and the luxury industry itself, on the other end there is the condition of those damned by dirty gold, from the Indians to the activists who fight against this murky cartel. A film that transforms the viewer's perspective about this business and makes a contribution to the necessary discussion in favour of more ethically responsible gold.
