Red Soil

Synopsis

Red Soil is a timely and edge-of-your-seat thriller.

This Dardenne brothers-produced thriller, which was part of the 2020 Cannes Film Festival Official Selection, is reminiscent of Erin Brockovich or Dark Waters and stars Zita Hanrot (The Hookup Plan), Olivier Gourmet (The Kid with a Bike) and Céline Sallette (The Returned). Nour (Hanrot), a young nurse, finds a job running the infirmary at the chemical plant where her dad (Sami Bouajila) has been labouring for 30 years.

She soon discovers a vast cover-up involving toxic waste dumping, cancer victims and a corrupt local government.
Now the young woman will have to choose between hiding the truth for her father’s sake or becoming a whistleblower and speak out against corporate greed to uncover the local pollution scandal.
