one of the merits of this documentary is that it has avoided the use of shocking images, preferring instead to rely mainly on the testimonies of the people affected and the specialist support of free scientists. it takes very little to spot the reassuring, fake, smiles of the government representatives and the militaries. they don't care that "every life is important".
