The Devil We Know

Unraveling one of the biggest environmental scandals of our time, a group of West Virginia citizens takes on a powerful corporation after they discover it has knowingly been dumping a toxic chemical—now found in the blood of 99.7% of Americans—into the drinking water supply. Filmmaker Stephanie Soechtig (Under the Gun, Fed Up) has crafted a well-made, engrossing, and enraging tale of long-term irresponsibility and injustice, the kind of powerful message that feels all the more urgent as the Trumpian war on industrial and environmental regulation moves on.

This is a free community screening.
