About Otra Cosa No Hay

Year Released:
2014
Genres:
Documentary
Metadata:
The water-rich highlands of the Colombian Páramo de Santurbán are nearly pristine, evidently preserved by the traditional mining communities inhabiting the region. The delicate balance maintained between economic needs, exploitable natural resources, and environmental protection has recently been disrupted by the arrival of foreign large-scale mining companies. Otra Cosa No Hay (There is Nothing Else) transports its audiences to this remote region of Colombia in order to provide complex insights into the conflicts between local people, foreign companies and environmentalists over the proper use of Colombia’s natural treasures. Christiana Ochoa is scheduled to be present. (HD presentation)
