The Good Life

(The Good Life)
Bulgaria/Namibia, 2016, 20 min.
Directed by
Meghan Horvath

In 2016 two female filmmakers travelled to Tsumeb, Namibia and Krumovgrad, Bulgaria in order to explore the impacts mining has on small communities. They discovered hopes, disappointments, successes and questions about the deeper and longer-term effects. At first glance Tsumeb and Krumovgrad – at either side of the equator and with different cultures – would seem to have very little in common. Just below the surface however, both communities are still coping with a legacy of political and social trauma, and both are outposts of the same Canadian mining company.

A Q&A with the film director, Meghan Horvath, will follow the screening.
