Wayuunaiki and Spanish with English subtitles.
“The Good Life” must be an ironic title, unless it refers to the mine owners and their shareholders. If you have ever wondered why some people, typically poor people, come to hate capitalism, watch this documentary. Capitalism can benefit both the owners and the employees, suppliers, etc., but the problem is greed. The owners and stockholders so often let greed become the one and only motivation, and then they cannot understand why the poor hate them. This 2015 documentary left me unsatisfied. Did Cerrejon ever live up to its agreements or was the Wayuu community left without a sufficient water supply? Hoping to find an answer, I checked Wikipedia and found that “in June 2020, lawyers for the local Wayuu community lodged a request to the United Nations special rapporteur for work to be immediately halted over environmental and human rights concerns.” So, I guess Cerrejon has still not met its contractual obligations. Shame on them.
I would have given five stars but I almost never give five to a film one has to read.
