Shown with MY BROOKLYN as part of Our Cities, Our Planet
Every year, more than 17,000 people eat fish from the polluted Anacostia River in Washington D.C. Decades of pollution have resulted in a buildup of toxins that sicken the fish population and have restricted the recommended consumption for catfish, carp and eel to zero. Efforts are underway to return the river to a more natural state and the fishermen themselves are key to addressing the problem. Produced by Colby Waller.
Introduced by Tony Thomas, Education Program Coordinator, Anacostia Community Museum.Discussion with filmmaker Colby Waller follows screening.
