Part personal journey, part courtroom drama, Arica is the story of a community fighting for justice. In the 1980s Swedish mining company Boliden exported 20,000 tonnes of toxic waste to the Chilean desert town of Arica. Thousands of people became sick, many died from cancer. Arica plunges us into the ground-breaking corporate accountability trial which began after Lars Edman – born in Chile and raised in Boliden, Sweden, birthplace of the company – exposed the scandal.
“The good fight is brilliantly told and the film sheds light on a shameful case of modern colonialism.”
