Travancore Titanium Products Limited (TTPL) is a titanium dioxide plant located along the seashore in Trivandrum, the capital of Kerala in Southern India. Titanium is used to manufacture various products, including paint, ink, flooring materials and even deodorant. The plant produces more than one hundred tons of waste water daily which flows directly through a local fishing village and into the sea. The "acid water" has destroyed the wealth of marine resources in the area and causes serious health issues for community members, including respiratory diseases. This video was filmed, directed, and produced by a local team of six young women - daughters of fishing families - on mission to share their community's struggle through their own images and narratives.
