Ten years after the opening of the huge Malartic open-pit gold mine, the expected economic miracle has become a mirage. Noting the glaring discrepancy between the town’s decline and the mining company’s wealth, director Nicolas Paquet reveals the inner workings of an opaque decision-making system where the citizenry has no say. Part anthropological study, part investigation into the heart of power, Malartic raises the universal question of democratic land management.
