This originally premiered at a few film festivals last year and will hit theaters this fall. Filmed over 5 years by director Anthony Baxter, Flint is the gripping story of the greatest water poisoning disaster in American history, seen through the eyes of the people of Flint, Michigan, whose health and lives were shattered. The film exposes the power struggles and political failures that leave Flint residents – the majority of whom are African American – still drinking contaminated water discarded by the local General Motors auto plant because it corrodes parts of car. For a world struggling with issues of racial injustice and a lack of trust in government and science, Flint is a devastating and timely warning of what happens when that trust completely collapses.
