"The Warriors of Qiugang," a film co-produced by MacArthur grantee Yale Environment 360 and showing exclusively on its website, has been nominated for an Academy Award for Best Documentary (short subject). Co-produced with filmmakers Ruby Yang and Thomas Lennon, it tells the story of a Chinese village's fight to shut down a chemical factory that is turning the local river black, killing fish and wildlife, and filling the air with foul fumes that burned residents' eyes and throats and sickened children.

Watch the film.
