“There’s Something in the Water” Film Screening
May 16th @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Join the FXB Center for Health & Human Rights, Harvard Public Health magazine, and the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health Office for Diversity and Inclusion on Tuesday, May 16th at 5:30pm for a free public screening of There’s Something in the Water, an environmental racism documentary co-directed and produced by Ian Daniel and Elliot Page. The film shines a light on the Canadian government’s current and historical decisions to prioritize the profits of large corporations over the health of Indigenous and Black Nova Scotian communities. Based on Dr. Ingrid Waldron’s incendiary study, the film engages in deeply personal and political dialogue with women from rural areas that are plagued by toxic fallout from industrial development who are at the forefront of some of Nova Scotia and the world’s most urgent environmental crises. The film’s world premiere was at the 2019 Toronto International Film Festival. Watch the trailer here.
This event will include introductory remarks by Jen Cruz, MPH and a post-screening discussion with filmmaker Ian Daniel and author Ingrid Waldron, PhD, moderated by Shoba Ramanadhan, ScD, MPH. A Q&A session will follow.
Pizza and beverages will be available and seating is not pre-assigned.
