MAXIMA tells the story of Máxima Acuña, a farmer who cannot read or write from the Peruvian highlands, who is standing up to one of the largest gold mining companies in the world: US-Based Newmont Mining Corporation.

A multi-billion mining project launched by Newmont – and partially financed by the World Bank - has put her livelihood and the life of hundreds of thousands like her, along with the beautiful mountains, lakes, and water systems, at risk of being destroyed forever.

As we follow Máxima’s fight for justice both in Peru and the US, we reveal the mechanics of how Newmont manages to get away with human rights and environmental crimes, and the role that The World Bank plays in this.
