Toxic Ground

Documentary 2006

Michael Graversen finds out that the town Grindsted, where he grew up is also the home of one of the biggest pollution scandals in Denmark. One day he hears the startling forecasts about the future of the groundwater on the radio and realizes that he was born and bred in a chemical dump.

No one seems to be willing to take responsibility for the disaster.
