Paradise Under Threat – English Trailer
In a remote corner of Southeast Ecuador called the Cordillera del Condor, in the upper reaches of the Amazon Basin, the first mega-mine in the history of the country is being built in sensitive environmental habitat and in the ancestral territory of the Shuar people. The Mirador Mine, a large Chinese-owned open-pit copper and silver mine is causing great concern among the Shuar, other indigenous groups and campesino communities, and is just one of many large-scale metal mines that are slated for the Condor. This is a trailer for the film “Paradise Under Threat-The Mirador Mine in the Condor”. The film presents information about the mine and its potential impacts on the environment, shows the biological and cultural diversity that is at risk, and presents some of the perspectives of the local people and other Ecuadoreans about the mine project.
