SLIGHTLY TOXIC addresses the increased use of agrochemicals since the implementation of PROCAMPITO, an incentive program by the government of the Mexican State of Campeche. José and Armando, two farmers from Campeche, introduce us to different ways of farming and share their perspectives on the use of chemicals, as well as on other not-so-apparent issues they must face. By interviewing agents of state institutions, the filmmaker reveals the political, economic and environmental contradictions and conflicts in Calakmul, one of the most important natural reserves in Mexico.
