My Toxic Backyard
November 19, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
Residents of a small Buncombe County community fight for clean drinking water as the contaminated soil of an old manufacturing plant continues to leak dangerous toxins into the ground more than 20 years after the threat was first reported to the Environmental Protection Agency. This documentary chronicles the community’s fight to obtain clean drinking water and have the groundwater cleaned up. The film’s Asheville-based director, Katie Damien, will host and facilitate a Q&A discussion following the showing. The screening is co-hosted by Angry Unicorn Entertainment.
