    In 1984, the Swedish mining company Boliden had toxic waste shipped to Chile, where it was supposed to be properly processed. In reality, some of the waste was dumped on the outskirts of the desert town of Arica.

    The consequences were severe: in the years that followed, residents developed cancer and many babies were born with birth defects.

    In this sequel to Toxic Playground (2009), the filmmakers follow the lawsuit against the mining company.

    Release on Tuesday 9 March at 18.00. The movie is available for streaming for 48 h.
