Vancouver Island University added to Flin Flon Flim Flam tour
InvestigativeMEDIA has added Vancouver Island University to its list of July screenings as it concludes its cross-Canada tour presenting the documentary film “Flin Flon Flim Flam.”
The film will be shown in five locations in British Columbia between July 9 and July 15.
“I’m delighted that professors at Okanagan College and Vancouver Island University are sponsoring screenings of the film that documents Toronto-based Hudbay Minerals’ worldwide operations,” said filmmaker John Dougherty.
“This documentary brings an important message to Canadians about the operations of a multinational mining company that is rarely discussed in the mainstream media that is suppressed by Canada’s right-to-reputation law,” he said.
The film documents how Hudbay Minerals contaminated its home town of Flin Flon with heavy metals; stands accused of human rights atrocities in Guatemala that has attracted coverage in the New York Times and the Toronto Star; used the Peruvian National Police to beat demonstrators at its Constancia mine site and is seeking to destroy one of the world’s most sensitive desert-aquatic environments in southern Arizona.
Amnesty International’s Human Right Radio interviewed Mr. Dougherty in June on CJTR 91.3 FM in Regina. The interview is available as a podcast from Amnesty International’s Human Rights Radio.
Mr. Dougherty will answer questions from the audience following each screening. Admission is free.
The tour continues in July with screenings at 7 p.m., July 9 at the Okanagan College Lecture Theatre, Kelowna; 3 p.m., July 10 at the Salmar Classic in Salmon Arm; 7 p.m., July 12 at the Cinematheque in Vancouver; 7 p.m., July 14, Vancouver Island University, Building 200, Theatre Room 203, Nanaimo, B.C. and 7 p.m., July 15 at The Vic in Victoria.
