Flint: The Poisoning of An American City

This film gives voice to the current struggle of Flint residents, beginning with the history of the river and how abuse and neglect of city infrastructure and environmental regulations led to the poisoning of an entire community. Flint explores the critical questions of "How can this happen in an American city?" and "How can this event serve as a warning for the rest of the country?"

A recent report found 5,300 American cities are also in violation of federal lead rules. Additional research published in USA Today detected excessive lead in nearly 2,000 public water systems across all 50 states.

This documentary is an excellent educational resource to start conversations with communities around systemic water justice issues, how to secure safe access for all, and seeks to radically change how we view and value water.
