Johnny Depp plays the famous Life magazine photographer W. Eugene Smith.
In 1971 Smith undertakes the most challenging and important subject of his career: travelling to the small Japanese village of Minamata which was ravaged by an outbreak of mercury poisoning due to gross negligence by Japan’s Chisso Corporation, and the government itself.
“A powerful reminder that there are indeed times when a picture is worth a thousand words” (The Australian)

“A forthright, heartfelt movie (…) about how communities can stand up to overweening corporations and how journalists dedicated to truthful news can help them” (The Guardian)
