From Dreams to Dust tells the story of Pola, a nickel miner and family man from Indonesia. Every day, he risks his life to feed his family, abandoning his dreams for the sake of his children’s future. For the last decade, his village has been transformed from an idyllic fishing village to a dusty red earth for the sake of the mineral nickel. Nickel is in everything the modern person uses, but it’s the key component in renewable batteries used in electric cars which are marketed as green. Through Pola’s eyes we see the dark side of green technology, paid for by Pola and his village.
