Violence vitalizes Carbon. In Mining Mexican Toxicity, Jose Romero (C'15) weaves together environmental justice and Mexican transnational labor, in order to undermine the boundaries separating persons from the elemental world. Ethnographic fieldwork on farm worker pesticide exposure, Latin cooking and gardening, and activist artwork on immigration provide the material in this engaging film.
