Social Cinema: The Devil We Know (2018)

  • devil we know (2018) poster Slider Image

USA | 95 min | NR | Dir. Stephanie Soechtig & Jeremy Seifert

This film is part of our Social Cinema series in collaboration with the Havens Center for Social Justice.

Q&A following the film facilitated by Wisconsin Environmental Health Network (WEHN).

When a handful of West Virginia residents discover DuPont has been pumping its poisonous Teflon chemical into the air and public water supply of more than 70,000 people, they file one of the largest class action lawsuits in the history of environmental law. As the citizens of Parkersburg rise up against the forces that polluted their town, the story builds out to dozens of other American cities. Parkersburg is ground zero for this story, but this clearly is not about one place or one chemical: because of the power of the chemical lobby, PFOA is one of more than 80,000+ untested chemicals that have been approved for use, their dangers unknown.
