The interests of industrial big business versus the responsibility they have to the population and environment around them has long been a hot-button issue. And in the forthcoming drama “Bhopal: A Prayer For Rain,” those themes come to the fore in the true story of one harrowing incident of negligence.
Directed by Ravi Kumar, and starring Mischa Barton, Martin Sheen, and Kal Penn, the film tells of the events leading up to Union Carbide’s airborne toxic chemical spill in Bhopal, India thirty years ago. Thousands of people were killed in just one night, in the worst industrial accident in history, and the effects of the event are still felt in the area to this day. And in this exclusive clip, we see a journalist (Barton) grilling a Union Carbide exec (Sheen) about how the spill could’ve happened.
“Bhopal: A Prayer For Rain” opens on November 7th in select cinemas. Watch below.
