The Gold Machine + Q&A

93 mins

From acclaimed Director Grant Gee, writer Iain Sinclair, and producer Janine Marmot working with Asheninka co-producer Gregorio Santos Perez, THE GOLD MACHINE combines documentary and fiction to reveal the traces of a dark history.

A father and daughter are haunted by the legacy of their ancestor — a Victorian botanist sent to the Peruvian jungle to scout for coffee-growing land. Retracing the ancestor’s colonial adventure reveals the brutal reality of a major land grab from the native Ashaninka people who try to wrest their land and story back.

The film will be followed by an in-person Q&A with Director Grant Gee, and writer Iain Sinclair
