Screening of The New El Dorado( More about event)
"The New El Dorado" (2004) is an independent documentary which shows the truth about RosÃÂia Montana, a magnificent Romanian village with a two thousand year history, threatened with destruction by a Canadian company in order to make way for Europe's largest open cast gold mine. Film maker Tibor Kocis has spent over three years in Rosia Montana putting together a profound and insightful documentary, distinguished with over 10 international awards. PU students who have volunteered in 2008 and 2009 to promote environmental conservation and preservation of ancient cultural heritage in Rosia Montana will lead a discussion and present opportunities for involvement.
