International Feature Films Official Competition

A Swedish mining company exports 20,000 tonnes of toxic waste to the Chilean desert town of Arica. Thousands of people become sick, many die from cancer. Arica plunges us into the groundbreaking corporate accountability trial which begins after Lars Edman—born in Chile and raised in Boliden—exposes the scandal. Alongside his co-director William Johansson, Lars follows the story for 15 years, exposing how decisions made decades ago in Europe continue to affect people in South America.
