High in the Romanian mountains, a dam was hastily built to collect the effluent from a megalomaniac copper mine, flooding an entire village. Only the church spire still protrudes from the toxic slurry. Despite this, for over 40 years Valeria has held on to her piece of earth where she lives in a small farmhouse on the hillside just a few metres away from the lake. How much longer can this continue? A true cinema experience. Jan Sebening
