Here’s a film to add to our list of Films we will never see at the Fundy Film Festival – or on CBC.
“Mine Your Own Business” follows George, a 23-year-old unemployed miner from northern Romania whose life has been put on hold after an anti-mining campaign orchestrated by foreign environmentalists. George explains his hopes and dreams for the future – which are different from those prescribed for him by foreign environmentalists. He then travels to other impoverished communities in Madagascar and Chile who are also desperately waiting for large mining projects. George finds people similar to himself with similar hopes and dreams of a decent job and house and a decent education and better life for their children.
Controversial? Yes, yes. But not favoured by the self-appointed anointed. [Mind you we would love to see a certain Councillor prove us wrong.]
