Cowboys in India

About This Episode



In a remote and impoverished region of India, a London filmmaker is unaware of the trouble he will cause his two endearing, bumbling local guides as they investigate the Corporate Social Responsibility program of a high-profile, London-based mining company. The company plans to mine a local tribe’s sacred mountain, and promises to bring all the benefits of modernity to the area. But many of the tribal people vow to fight, preferring a simple life in nature. As allegations accumulate, the filmmaker’s ethical stance is put to the test as he tries to get his film “in the can.”
