Synopsis

Investigative short documentary about illegal gold mining in Ghana awarded with the Student Academy Award 'Best International Documentary 2017'.

 

The river banks nearby Twifu Praso resemble cratered moonscapes, the water is poisoned with mercury. Three bodies lie in the dust after a clash of miners and police. “If we don't stop this Galamsey,” mayor Bossman says, “then Ghana will go to hell”.
