Red Soil is a timely and edge-of-your-seat thriller. This Dardenne brothers-produced thriller, directed by Farid Bentoumi, is reminiscent of Erin Brockovich or Dark Waters, and stars Zita Hanrot (The Hookup Plan), Olivier Gourmet (The Kid with a Bike) and Céline Sallette (The Returned). Nour (Hanrot), a young nurse, finds a job running the infirmary at the chemical plant where her dad (Sami Bouajila) has been labouring for 30 years.

She soon discovers a vast cover-up involving toxic waste dumping, cancer victims and a corrupt local government. Now the young woman will have to choose between hiding the truth for her father’s sake or becoming a whistleblower and speak out against corporate greed to uncover the local pollution scandal.

Signature Entertainment presents Red Soil on Digital Platforms 16th August
