Rise Beyond Gold Film & Panel Discuss (Feb 2021 Meeting)

Watch the Film


Watch the Film and Panel Discussion, which was hosted in our MineWatch Virtual Community Event in February.


This year, SYRCL's Wild & Scenic Film Festival featured a film about the proposal re-opening of the Idaho-Maryland Mine, a relic gold mine in Nevada County, CA. The community faces a foreign corporation that would take the gold from under their property and leave a toxic legacy. Rise Beyond Gold raises bigger questions for the world at large. Why do we desire gold; and ultimately, is it worth it?


The Community Event Panel:

- Greg Thrush, The Sierra Fund, Moderator

- Jennifer Ekstrom, Filmmaker, and Principal Storyteller, Catalyst Communications

- Menkin Nelson, Film Producer

- Ralph Silberstein, Community Environmental Advocates Foundation

- Carrie Monahan, The Sierra Fund

- Christy Hubbard, Impacted Homeowner


Read CEA Foundation's review of Rise Beyond Gold, which further clarifies several questions raised by the film.
