High schoolers Intan Utami and Nuha Anfaresi marveled at the turquoise ocean of Bangka Belitung province. But beneath its breathtaking colors, the province is causing concern among environmentalists, especially about the impact of its offshore tin-mining practices.
Intan and Nuha were no different. They voiced their concerns about the level of lead-heavy metal coming from the byproducts of tin ore processing. Their research was one of the projects addressed in Inventing Tomorrow by Laura Nix, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in 2018.
