Green Gold? tells the story of desperate water shortages faced by communities in Chile due to our global insatiable appetite for avocados.It includes government interviews, questioning policy and lack of regulation, bringing these issues to the key players in power. Corporations such as the Chilean Hass Avocado Board,Cabilfruit- the largest exporter of Hass Avocados from the region - andthe largest European importer of avocados refused to be interviewed for this film, but all were highly aware of the issues and inequities in Chile. There have beeninternational media reports about this issue and whilst this film alone may not bring key policy change, it is one strongbalanced, trusted, international voice putting pressure for change. It is an absolutely key part of the 'war effort' i.e. mobilising effort, to ensure impact.
