When: September 20, 2019

When Dian was six, an earthquake, set off by natural gas drilling, sent a tsunami of mud hurtling towards her village. Ten years later, people in her community still seek reparation from the powerful mining company responsible for the damage. This furious and beautiful documentary offers a portrait of a teenager finding her political voice, inspired by the creative activism of a community determined to hold a powerful corporation to account for their environmental crimes.
