Storyline

'Profit and Loss' tells the stories of two indigenous groups and their resistance to the modern gold rush - our insatiable thirst for mineral resources that threatens their lands. In Papua New Guinea, villagers resist forced relocation by a nickel mine and try to stop its plan to dump mining waste into the sea. In Canada, First Nations people protest the destruction of traditional hunting and fishing grounds by the tar sands industry, which brings jobs, but also may be causing cancer. Rare verite scenes of tribal life allow indigenous people to tell their own stories - and confront us with the ethical consequences of our culture of consumption. Narrated by Graham Greene, this film is part of the 'Standing on Sacred Ground' documentary series. Written by Anonymous
