The purpose of this investigation is to explore the effects of agro-business and the presence of industry along the Paraná River in the province of Santa Fe, Argentina. The growth of the soy industry in Argentina has changed the industrial landscape, resulting in significant negative consequences for the residents of the industrial belt in Santa Fe. We explored these consequences through interviews with residents about how their daily lives have been affected by the presence of industry and brought these interviews together in a short documentary. The documentary begins by explaining the problem, how it began and what policies allowed these industries to develop, and how it has negatively affected the health and daily life of the communities.
