Synopsis

BITTER RIVER is a heartbreaking exploration of Brazil's worst environmental disaster: 2015's deadly Mariana Dam rupture.

Owned and operated by some of the world's largest mining firms, this iron ore tailings dam failed due to overfilling, ultimately flooding the nearby town of Bento Rodrigues and killing 19 people.

Through victim testimonials and first hand accounts, BITTER RIVER tracks the loss of life, land, and livelihood in the aftermath of the tragedy.

November 5, 2021 will mark 6 years since the disaster.
