Film Screening: The Devil We Know
February 12, 2019 @ 2:00 am - 5:00 am UTC+0
From cosmetics to ski wax, frying pans to waterproof jackets, take-out foodware to stain-resistant fabrics, Teflon-like chemicals are found in hundreds of consumer products—and now in nearly every American.
Stephanie Soechtig’s documentary The Devil We Know chronicles a group of citizens in West Virginia as they take on a powerful corporation following the discovery that it knowingly dumped PFAS, a class of toxic chemicals into the drinking water supply. These substances, developed to make non-stick coatings, spread from this stream to waterways throughout the planet and into the bloodstreams of fish, wildlife, and humans.
Join us for a panel discussion following the film screening. We’re proud to co-sponsor this event, hosted by Lt. Governor David Zuckerman.
