After living in the US for decades, a Brazilian geographer returns to her native state of Minas Gerais when a mining-related environmental disaster strikes the area. A dam burst, destroying several villages with heavily polluted wastewater from an iron ore mine. Through the train window, we see a vast iron ore quarry. Mining is everywhere. It is also present in the writing of Brazil’s most famous poet, Carlos Drummond de Andrade,—his poems describe the price the population has paid for the large-scale extraction and export of raw materials.
