On December 3rd 1984, over 40 tons of highly poisonous gas leaked out of the pesticide factory of Union Carbide in Bhopal, India. Thousands died in the immediate aftermath and at least 20,000 have died since. It is estimated that 10-15 are dying every month. It is the worst chemical disaster known to man.
The film 'Bhopal Express' is a human drama set against the tragedy, through the eyes of a newly wed couple and their friend. The film examines the irresponsible methods of large corporations and their effects on common people. More information on the movie at www.bhopalexpress.com
