In the mid-'80s, Swedish mining company Boliden exported hazardous waste to the town of Arica in northern Chile, turning a blind eye towards its mismanagement. This has devastating consequences for the health of the local community, heavily affecting young children as well as adults. Arica by Lars Edman and William Johansson Kalén plunges us into the lawsuit against the mining giant, as the underprivileged demand justice and petition the company to take responsibility for the case.
