Schweizer, Daniel. Dirty Paradise. Zurich: Dschoint Ventschr Filmproduktion, 2009. 35 mm, 76 min. https://youtu.be/TD3K0jOPMCQ.

Today an incredible sanitary and ecological disaster is taking place in the heart of the Amazonia in an overseas department of France, on the border between Surinam and French Guyana. Dirty Paradise shares the plight of a thousand Indians who are trying to survive the devastation caused by 10,000 illegal gold-seekers who hide in the forests. The gold fever has swept across the region and mercury contamination has created health problems. Unfortunately, the worst is yet to come. Dirty Paradise is the story of an Amerindian tribe which refuses to disappear silently or remain indifferent. (Source: Official Film Website)
