The name “Minamata” may not be familiar to most, but the Johnny Depp-produced film is based on a shocking true story. In the early 70s, war photographer W. Eugene Smith (Johnny Depp) travels back to Japan. He met Japanese translator Aileen (Minami), who told him about Minamata, a city in Japan. Unfortunately, the citizens are falling ill to mercury poisoning and a neurological disorder dubbed Minamata disease, linked to the dangerous chemical being pumped into the water supply by a large company in the area. Shocked by what he sees, Smith risks personal and professional relationships to get the story to the world.
