What Lies Upstream, a film

Wednesday, April 18 - 5:00 PM


Free Food (5:00), Film(5:30) and Forum(6:45).. a panel discussion. The 2017 documentary film What Lies Upstream uncovers the truth behind a massive chemical spill that leaves 300,000 West Virginians without drinking water. Viewers are taken into scientific cover-ups and political malfeasance across all levels of government, poisoning the entire system meant to protect drinking water. Variety wrote it's "a quietly devastating documentary" that "builds a persuasive case against not only industry and political figures, but also the Centers for Disease Control and the Environmental Protection Agency." It won the Special Jury Prize for investigative filmmaking at the Seattle International Film Festival.
