Mirage of El Dorado leads us far into the Andes of northern Chile, where a pitched battle takes place between a farming community and mining giants like Canada's Barrick Gold and its Pascua Lama project. The good, the bad and the powerful play for keeps in our political cowboy flick where radically different views of development collide.
