Since the passage of the North American Free Trade Agreement 20 years ago, U.S. companies have used the Santiago River as their own waste canal. Silent River is a short documentary film that follows a young woman and her family as they defy death threats to try and save one of the most polluted rivers in Mexico. See the full film at the Silent River website.
