Focus Years: 2009 | Country: United Kingdom
"Mine", narrated by Joanna Lumley, tells the story of the remote Dongria Kondh tribe's struggle to protect their sacred mountain. London-based mining company Vedanta Resources plans a vast open-cast bauxite mine in India's Niyamgiri hills, and the Dongria Kondh know that means the destruction of their forests, their way of life, and the mountain they worship as a God. What will one tribe do to save everything they know?
