Focus Group presents the award-winning Peruvian film Daughter of the Lake (Hija de la laguna) by Ernesto Cabellos Damián (2015, 87 mins). At the height of the Peruvian gold rush, an Andean woman able to communicate with the water spirits uses her powers to prevent the biggest gold-mining company in Latin America from destroying the lake she considers to be her mother. This compelling documentary illuminates the life-and-death struggle that results from the conflict between the interests of foreign industry and local peoples.
