Share

(Chicago) After a successful debut in Toronto, Montreal, and Ottawa, InvestigativeMEDIA is adding three locations on its trans-Canada tour to screen its groundbreaking documentary “Flin Flon Flim Flam”.

The 51-minute film documents the notorious history of Toronto-based Hudbay Minerals’ worldwide operations. Hudbay is one of Canada’s oldest mining companies and was featured in a critical story earlier this year in The New York Times for alleged human rights abuses in Guatemala.

The exposé reveals Hudbay’s widespread environmental contamination of its primary operating base in Flin Flon, reports on allegations of murder, gang rapes and shootings in Guatemala, reveals Hudbay’s hidden conflicts with indigenous people in Peru and the company’s plans to destroy one of the world’s most biologically-diverse ecosystems in Arizona that is home to the only known wild jaguar in the U.S.

In addition to six upcoming screenings in June including Winnipeg on June 7 and Flin Flon on June 10, InvestigativeMEDIA has added three stops in British Columbia in July.

The film will be shown at 7 p.m., July 9 at the Okanagan College Lecture Theatre in Kelowna; 3 p.m., July 10 at the Salmar Classic in Salmon Arm and  7:00 p.m., July 15 at The Vic in Victoria. InvestigativeMEDIA will also show the film in downtown Vancouver at 7 p.m., July 12 at the Cinematheque.

“Concerned Canadians who attended the first three screenings stayed after the film and engaged in a vigorous discussion about mining issues in Canada and abroad,” says InvestigativeMEDIA’s John Dougherty, the film’s director. “Hudbay has operated with near impunity for more than 85 years. It’s time to hold the company responsible for its environmental and social abuses.”
