Gold Fever bears witness to the ongoing struggle in rural Guatemala near Goldcorp Inc's Marlin Mine, one of the world's most profitable open pit gold mines. The film returns to the United States, fresh off last week's international premiere in Guatemala City's 2,000 seat Teatro Nacional. That sold-out screening, taking place mere hours after a judge halted the ongoing genocide trial of former military dictator Efrain Rios Montt, included attendance from 85 members of the mine-affected San Miguel Ixtahuacán community. Gold Fever was the opening night film of La Muestra de Cine Internacional Memoria Verdad Justicia, Guatemala's premiere international human rights and documentary film festival.
