    John Dougherty’s documentary “Flin Flon Flim Flam” on the worldwide operations of Canadian mining company Hudbay Minerals and its plans to build the Rosemont Copper mine southeast of Tucson will screen again at 4 p.m., Sunday, Nov. 1, at the Loft Cinema in Tucson. “We had a great crowd on Oct. 18, and hope to see more of you next week. All proceeds benefit the Arizona Center for Investigative Journalism!” says John.

    General admission $10.

    InvestigativeMEDIA turns its unflinching focus on Canadian miner Hudbay Minerals Inc. and its controversial plans to construct the massive Rosemont open-pit copper mine in the Santa Rita Mountains on the Coronado National Forest southeast of Tucson. InvestigativeMEDIA’s John Dougherty documents Hudbay’s legacy of lead poisoning in a remote Manitoba community where the company operated a notorious copper smelter for 80 years. He then turns to Hudbay’s former operations in Guatemala where the company stands accused of murder, rape and shootings in a precedent setting civil trial. Dougherty travels to the Peruvian Andes documenting indigenous villagers occupying a mine site after Peruvian police beat and teargased protesters angry over Hudbay’s failure to abide by an agreement. Dougherty uncovers Hudbay’s misleading statements over its proposed Rosemont copper project and the ecological treasure that would be destroyed if the mine were constructed. (Dir. by John Dougherty, 2015, in English/Spanish/English subtitles, 48 mins.)
