Your choice, your world, your future.

The collapse of Dam 1 of the Córrego do Feijão mine near the city of Brumadinho on Jan 25th 2019 was the biggest industrial disaster in Brazil to date – and is now understood as a crime. It was not the first of its kind – and could have been prevented. In the film the famous Brasilian poet Carlos Drummond, who grew up exactly in this mining region, lets us imagine the impact for the environment and a future in the region that was so far dominated by the mining corporations.
