Tale of the Tongs
Washington, D.C. Premiere Narrated by Sean Penn, this powerful film exposes the David-and-Goliath battle activists are waging against the increasingly deregulated U.S. chemical industry and its $52-million-per-year lobbying effort, even as rates of autism, cancer and infertility continue to increase. The award-winning directors expose the cynical and methodical approach taken by the chemical industry to remain unregulated and influential while saving their bottom line. Directed and produced by Dana Nachman and Don Hardy. Executive Producer, Sean Penn.
Introduced by Turner Freeman, Adult Librarian, Information Services, Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library. Discussion with Nneka Leiba, Deputy Director of Research, Environmental Working Group, follows screening.
