WATCH: ‘We Call Them Intruders’ Trailer – Documentary About Canadian Mining in Africa


If you live and work in Canada, chances are you’re connected to Canadian mining companies – whether you know it or not – through your savings, taxes, Canada Pension Plan contributions, RRSPs and other investments. In We Call Them Intruders, two Vancouver-based filmmakers trace their savings to Canadian mines in Eastern and Southern Africa, unearthing the stories behind some of the continent’s largest Canadian-owned mining projects. The film brings viewers on a journey, taking a hard look at why communities, governments and corporations are so often pitted against each other in an explosive battle over extracting the earth’s riches.
