In Romania🇷🇴, in the breathtakingly beautiful Carpathian Mountains, a village is facing a tragic fate—being swallowed up bit by bit by the waste from a nearby copper mine. Since its opening in 1977, the mine has been slowly leaching toxins into the nearby environment and causing massive destruction to the surrounding area.
The village, which has been around for centuries, is vanishing piece by piece due to continued damage from the mine’s pollution. Local people have seen crops wilt and die, rivers filled with toxic substances, and animals become sick or die due to illnesses caused by this continuous environmental disaster.
The effects of this mining operation are devastating not only for local villagers but also for anyone who visits or lives near this pristine mountain region. The documentary “Vanishing Village” follows a small group of locals as they fight against the closure of the mine and try to save their treasured homes and way of life from being destroyed forever.
This heart-rending story is an unforgettable reminder of how even in today’s world we can still face a powerful force like big corporate interests when it comes to protecting our environment and preserving our communities. We must all take action if we want to ensure that such tragedies don’t occur again in future generations.
