Special Film Event: River of Gold

The Department of Natural and Cultural Resources and the North Carolina Museum of Art require film and lecture program participants ages 13 and up to show proof of COVID-19 vaccination or a negative COVID-19 NAAT or PCR test result; test results must be within 72 hours of the event. Please plan to have one of these items in hand upon entry for Museum personnel.

Come celebrate the opening weekend of the exhibition Fault Lines: Art and the Environment at this thought-provoking documentary screening. Stay for the postscreening conversation with Susie Ganch and Kathleen Kennedy, directors of Radical Jewelry Makeover, and artists and jewelers Sarah Parker and Angela Bubash. Susie Ganch is a featured artist in Fault Lines.

After this special film event, come get to know the artists and jewelers behind Radical Jewelry Makeover (RJM) at the RJM Artist Project Pop-Up. Visitors will have an opportunity to commission a unique Makeover piece by selecting items from the donation pile and working with one of the RJM artists.

River of Gold (2016). Directed by Sarah DuPont, Reuben Aaronson, 63 min., NR

Narrated by Academy Award—winners Sissy Spacek and Herbie Hancock, this documentary by the Amazon Aid Foundation is the disturbing account of the destruction of Peru’s Amazon rain forest caused by illegally mined gold. Ron Haviv and Donovan Webster, two war journalists, led by Peruvian scientist and activist Enrique Ortiz, bear witness to the apocalyptic destruction of this critical region and its transformation into a wasteland. This documentary reaffirms the right of the rain forest to exist as a repository of priceless biodiversity and not as the toxic remains of man’s greed for gold.
