Wednesday, October 16
7 pm
Cost: Free
A free screening of Right to Harm (2019).

USA | 75 minutes | NR | Blu-Ray | Dir. Annie Speicher and Matt Wechsler

In collaboration with the UW-Madison Department of Community and Environmental Sociology and the Sustain Rural Wisconsin Network, join WUD Film in watching Right to Harm (2019) followed by a panel after the film with the filmmakers.

Through the riveting stories of five American communities, 'Right to Harm' exposes the devastating public health impact that factory farming has on many of our country's most disadvantaged citizens. Known formally as concentrated Animal Feeding Operations - or CAFOs - these facilities produce millions of gallons of untreated waste that destroys the quality of life for nearby neighbors. Fed up with the lack of regulation, these citizens-turned activists band together from across the country to demand justice.

 

Assistive Screening Accommodations for Patrons with Disability

  • Closed Captions and Visually Impaired Audio Description not available
  • Assisted Listening Device Amplification available

These free events are intended for UW-Madison students, faculty, staff, and Union members and guests.
