Friday Night Film Series: THE DEVIL WE KNOW
(dir. Stephanie Soechtig, 2018, 88 min)
The Devil We Know is the story of how one synthetic chemical, used to make Teflon products, contaminated a West Virginia community. But this damning eco-doc also highlights a much broader problem: nearly all Americans are affected by exposure to non-stick chemicals in food, drinking water, and consumer products. Confronting the lack of oversight on the chemical industry, Soechtig’s riveting film exposes the apparently decades-long efforts by the DuPont corporation to deny the adverse effects of chemicals used in the manufacture of Teflon products.
