L’or des autres
The arrival of the mining company Osisko creates a lot of agitation in Malartic, a small community of 3600 souls in Quebec, Canada. Many families and seniors need to write off certain elements of their heritage. Others see their lifestyle threatened to disappear in order to make room for the unthinkable : the largest open-pit gold mine in Canada.
The project is endorsed by the implacable Mining Act, which prioritizes the right to exploit subsoil resources rather than the right to protect the properties and lands of the citizens. The characters in The Gold of Others experience in their own way this turmoil in their town that will drastically change their way of life as well as their own environment forever.
