The Good Life (La Buena Vida) (Germany/Switzerland/Colombia, 2015, 97 min.) Washington, DC Premiere
Jairo Fuentes is the young leader of the community of Tamaquito, a village in the forests of northern Colombia. But the Wayúu communitys way of life is being destroyed by the El Cerrejón coal mine. This vast chasm extends for 700 square kilometers, making it the worlds largest open-cast coal mine. Every day, the pit gets deeper, gnawing away at the previously unspoiled landscape. Determined to save his community from the forced displacement, Jairo Fuentes sets out to negotiate with the mines operators. Directed by Jens Schanze. Produced by Jens Schanze and Frank Matter.

Presented by the Documentary Center at George Washington University and the Goethe-Institut.

FREE. Reservations required.
