Globally, over 100 million people depend on Artisanal and Small-scale Mining for survival. These miners and their families are caught in a vicious circle of exploitation and illegality but in the small Colombian village La Llanada it's different. The documentary will highlight how Fairmined certificate is a groundbreaking initiative that enables miners to improve their livelihoods and it assures concerned consumers that gold jewellery they buy is responsibly sourced.
