The Marrow of the Mountain Documentary

We are pleased to announce our newest collaboration: Marrow of the Mountain, a film directed by Dylan Stirewalt and Solange Yepez.


Mega-mining has come to Ecuador. In 2017, multinational mining companies bought the rights to huge swaths of the country, leaving Ecuador’s most sensitive and biodiverse habitats at the mercy of international mining interests. This happened suddenly, and without public knowledge or consent; most of these sales are in the mineral-rich and endangered Chocó Rainforest. Told in the voices of three women, we witness the deep impact of extractive industry on Ecuadorian lives, as they struggle to protect their families and communities whilst the land is being sold out from under their feet.
