Premier screening of Ghana Gold: The Movie IV
May 3, 2010
Sophia Gordon Hall, 5:30 – 7:30 pm

This documentary explores corporate social responsibility in Ghana's gold mining industry. The film was produced by students at Tufts University who traveled to Ghana for two weeks during the winter as participants in a Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) study tour conducted by Prof Pearl Robinson of the Department of Political Science. The film features their travels to mining communities, their discussions with mining company executives, government officials, environmental activists, a traditional chief, artisanal miners, and academics knowledgeable about various facets of the industry and CSR. The 30 minute movie will be followed by a Q&A session with the students. A light supper will be served.

The Ghana Gold group with nhene Osagyefuo Amotia Ofori Panin, one of Ghana's most prominent chiefs. Before taking the throne he was an environmental lawyer in New Jersey and recently completed a term as Chairman of the Board of Ghana's Environmental Protection Agency.
