We the Stones
19:30 HS / Sala B, Nelly Goitiño Auditorium
We the stones follows three gold panners deep in Costa Rica’s jungle. For years they have panned the rivers and exchanged their gold for food and alcohol. Now, the government has decided to expel them all. This intimate and lyrical film captures these modern day pariahs´ struggles and questions Costa Rica´s conservation fame.
