Sound Event: Mining the Deep: Stories of Resistance

10.00AM Sun 24 Mar 2019 (3hrs)
GOMA | Cinema A | Free


Mining the Deep is a soundscape documentary weaving together stories about resistance to deep sea bed mining in Papua New Guinea and Vanuatu. It brings voices from directly affected communities in the Duke of York Islands into dialogue with campaigners and government leaders, to powerfully evidence the contested nature of marine extractives and its impacts on ocean relationships and livelihoods. By capturing and recreating the atmospheres of life affected by mining through sound, Mining the Deep offers an intimate and rare insight into the new frontiers of development being fought by our neighbouring Oceanic communities.
