San Francisco Green Film Festival

A work-in-progress preview of this new feature documentary from Anthony Baxter (You’ve Been Trumped, Best Feature SFGFF 2012; A Dangerous Game, SFGFF 2015) about the lead in drinking water crisis in Flint, Mich.

Baxter first heard about the water contamination crisis while participating in Michael Moore’s Traverse City Film Festival. “This just wasn’t a case of people having their water cut off for not paying their bills. They were paying for poisonous water. It was shocking.”

Flint’s 100,000 residents have been without safe drinking water since 2014, when local officials started diverting water from the Flint River to cut costs. Baxter has been on the ground in Flint, chronicling how local residents are pulling together to try to get through this. See exclusive footage from the film collected during more than two years of documenting one of the worst mass poisonings in American history.
