Defiant in its tone, Arica tells the story of the aftermath of Swedish mining company Boliden’s decision to dump hazardous toxic waste in the small town of Arica in northern Chile in the 1980s.

After thousands of inhabitants showed signs of poisoning and illness in the intervening years, the survivors sought justice in what has proven to be a groundbreaking transnational corporate accountability trial. The film follows the trial and the survivors’ quest for justice.
