Grit + Short

Part of the Take One Action Film Festival Season

Body

Dian was six when she heard a rumbling as an earthquake, set off by natural gas drilling in the area, led to a tsunami of mud hurtling towards her village. Ten years later, thousands of people in her community still seek reparation from the powerful mining company responsible for the damage. As a teenager finding her political voice, Dian has high hopes for Indonesia’s new administration – but she faces many obstacles on the road to justice.

Dian’s story epitomises that of many other indigenous populations rising up against the impunity with which large mining companies are destroying communities, cultures and the environment. While it exposes the links between energy companies and government – fuelled by bribes and political expediency – Grit is, at its heart, a rousing tribute to youth activism and to the role of education in empowering young women.

Presented in association with Global Justice Now.
