Published Surrey, England : Mudflow, 2018


Description 1 online resource (82 minutes)
Summary In 2006, international drilling company Lapindo carelessly unleashed an unstoppable toxic mudflow into East Java -- burying dozens of nearby villages and displacing tens of thousands of Indonesians in the process. Documentarians Cynthia Wade (Academy Award® winner for Freeheld) and Sasha Friedlander focus the tragedy around 16-year-old survivor Dian, a survivor who is routinely ignored by her government, despite the unforgiving sludge continuing to engulf her home for over a decade. Chronicling the teenager's transformation from a young girl into an outspoken advocate for her community, Grit is a timely showcase of the urgent need for political activism, the duty to hold those in power accountable, and the perseverance of the human spirit amidst social and environmental strife
