Like Fish In The Ice (Como pez en el hielo)
This compelling documentary follows 6 families that have migrated from Latin American countries, including Mexico, Chile, Venezuela, Cuba, El Salvador and Colombia, to some of the coldest rural areas, or unusual places in Canada: be it for work, love or adventure. Despite the severe temperatures and long winters, they have found a way to make Canada home. Experience small town life in Canada through the eyes of new Hispanic Canadians, and learn how they adapted to the Canadian way of life while keeping a small piece of home close to them.
All That Glitters Is Not Gold (No todo lo que brilla es oro)
In January of 2013, a Canadian mining executive is kidnapped in Colombia by the National Liberation Army. With a leftist guerrilla group claiming responsibility, similar kidnappings have become commonplace as international mining companies clash with local landowners. Take a revealing look at Canadian mining practices in Colombia and whether their presence helps or hinders an already exploited industry.
