ELDORADO — The Struggle For Skouries‘ is a prize-winning documentary about the civic struggle against destructive resource extractionism at Europe’s largest mining project located in Halkidiki, Northern Greece.

Chronicling the resistance against high-risk gold mining and the abusive criminalization of the anti-mining movement by the Greek government, it is a compelling document of neoliberal ideals and human rights abuses playing out in one of the most crisis-ridden countries of Europe. The documentary is partly based on SOMO report ‘Fool’s Gold’.
