As the global demand for the super food avocados has soared, Chile has become the world’s third-largest exporter of avocados. But the community of Petorca, Chile, say drought — and the insatiable appetite for avocados — has brought desperate water shortages. This film explores a quiet water war. Allegations of water theft, of exploitation, and of death threats against those who speak out are rife. “When you export our avocados, you export our water,” says one community member. The government says it is bringing change, but as exports continue to grow, Green Gold? explores an uncomfortable global moral dilemma.
