How Swedish Waste Poisoned Chile | ARICA (Full Film) | The Short List

In the mid-80's the Swedish mining giant Boliden dumped 20000 tonnes of hazardous waste in Arica in Northern Chile. Thousands of 'Ariqueños' were affected with cancers and other serious illness. Now a group of survivors are seeking justice.

'The Short List' is a collection of some of the world’s best documentaries, curated by VICE founder Suroosh Alvi. On the first Thursday of every month, we’re airing a brand new documentary on our YouTube.

Each episode features a full documentary accompanied by Alvi in conversation with the filmmakers and the films’ subjects. In his conversations with the filmmakers Suroosh explores the themes of the films, unpacks the journey the filmmakers embarked on when creating their projects, and delves into the documentaries’ impact on audiences.

This series aims to take conversations usually only privy to the film festival crowd and go deeper, sharing them with millions of VICE viewers around the world. These documentaries go beyond parachute journalism — they are immersive insights into global issues and subcultures.
