Wednesday, February 29th, 2012 by

Bhopali continues its mission to reach audiences of all origins with its screening at the Global Visions Film Festival! The festival runs from March 01, 2012 – March 04, 2012, with Bhopali screening March 03, 2012 from 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM at the Metro Cinema.  A bit of information on the festival and the film:

Global Visions Film Festival, Canada’s longest running documentary film festival, is dedicated to presenting socially relevant films from around the world exploring issues of social, economic and environmental development. Their mandate is to promote film and video as catalysts for reflection, discussion, and responsible action.

Bhopali documents the experience of second generation children affected by the Union Carbide gas disaster of 1984, the worst industrial disaster in history, and subsequent contamination of groundwater by Union Carbide Corporation (an American company now owned by Dow Chemical, the second largest chemical company in the world). It follows several children as they and their families cope with the ongoing medical and social disaster, as well as their memories of that traumatizing night that shocked the world and changed Bhopal forever. Set against the backdrop of vehement protests for the 25th anniversary of the disaster, the Bhopalis continue to fight for justice, proving to be anything but victims.

Set against a backdrop of high stakes activism, global politics, and human rights advocacy, this film explores the ongoing struggle for justice against Union Carbide, the American corporation responsible for the disaster. Featuring Noam Chomsky, Satinath Sarangi, and attorney Rajan Sharma.
