Film on Colombia mining town enters Sundance competition


A documentary on a Colombian mining town has been selected to take part in the competition for US documentaries at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival.

The film Marmato by director Mark Grieco deals with a town in the western state of Caldas where locals are fighting Canadian mining company Gran Colombia Gold over the rights to dig up an estimated $20 billion worth of gold hidden underneath the town.

On his Facebook page, Grieco said “we couldn’t be happier” about the nomination after spending six years in the town.
