Description: This documentary examines the effects of mercury poisoning on the inhabitants of the Japanese fishing village of Minamata.

It also shows in some detail their efforts to gain some acknowledgment of the facts from the companies involved and the Japanese government.~ Clarke Fountain, All Movie Guide
