Flint: The Poisoning of an American City traces the timeline of the city’s interaction with the Flint River – from the continued abuse and neglect of both city infrastructure and environmental regulations, to subsequent population decline, through to Michigan’s 2013 appointing of outside emergency managers. Winner of the Frank Little Award for Self Sacrifice & Social Change at the 2019 Covellite International Film Festival, this documentary educates and inspires action, seeking to radically change how we view and value water.

Join us for an hors d’oeuvres reception, followed by a screening and discussion with the director, David Barnhart of Presbyterian Disaster Assistance’s Story Productions. For more information on Flint: The Poisoning of an American City, visit the film’s website.
