The Bronx Documentary Center welcomes Stephen Ferry for the launch of the English version of his newest book, La Batea: Impressions of Gold in Colombia.

Ferry made La Batea in collaboration with his sister, the cultural anthropologist Elizabeth Ferry. The book is a carefully intimate look into the lives of artisanal gold miners, their craft, and their struggles with multinational mining companies and armed groups in Colombia.

La Batea: Impressions of Gold in Colombia is published by Red Hook Editions.
