This 2002 video about mercury-poisoned Peruvian villagers seeking redress from a U.S. mining company is distinguished from run-of-the-mill investigative documentaries by its scope. Not content with a quick TV-style hit about corporate duplicity and government corruption, directors Ernesto Cabellos and Stephanie Boyd stayed with the story for two years, documenting the ways in which local activism can be undermined by greed, stupidity, and infighting. Although the underdogs come off a little better at the end, no one is left untarnished in this cautionary tale. 78 min.
