Ironland (Brazil) 2021 - Still from film 07

Lucas Bambozzi’s hybrid film follows Brazilian geographer Camila who, after decades in the United States, returns to her native state of Minas Gerais just as a dam bursts and floods several villages with highly toxic water. She embarks on a journey across the state to document how mining has shaped its history. She speaks to miners, activists and victims of the disaster. Ironland combines fact and fiction to present the devastation corporate greed has caused on the country’s environment and its people.
