Bhopal 84: The Greatest Industrial Crime in History

"Slow and silent disasters like Bhopal happen every day, in various parts of the world." It was with these words that Indian activist Rachna Dhingra, explained to us why she dedicates her life to reporting on a crime that occurred 36 years ago.

In the early hours of December 3rd, 1984, more than 27 tons of methyl isocyanate gas leaked from a pesticide factory in the city of Bhopal, central India. The documentary Bhopal 84, which will be released on the anniversary of the crime by Brasil de Fato, revives the memory of that episode and sheds light on its consequences.
