Thursday, May 24, 2018 - The Devil We Know
We are so pleased to offer an advance screening of this film, which just premiered at the Sundance film festival and got great reviews. It follows a group of citizens in West Virginia who take on a powerful corporation after they discover it has knowingly been dumping a toxic chemical - now found in the blood of 99.7% of Americans - into their drinking water supply. This movie is especially timely because the toxic chemical (PFOA) investigated in the film has now been found contaminating drinking water in numerous Vermont communities, including Bennington, South Burlington, and Rutland.
