Coming to VOD today, Wednesday, November 2: CIRCLE OF POISON
Evan Mascagni and Shannon Post’s investigation into banned chemicals debuted at DOC NYC last year. Its fest circuit also included Barcelona and Washington DC’s Environmental fests, Salem, and Louisville. It now comes to iTunes and other VOD platforms.
I previously wrote about the film for DOC NYC’s program, saying:
When the federal government bans a chemical, deeming it harmful to the well-being of its citizens, few know that they actively encourage the manufacturer to export it abroad for profit. Evan Mascagni and Shannon Post’s pointed exposé reveals this disturbing practice, focusing on the global trade in banned pesticides, their devastating environmental and health impact, and, perhaps most eye-opening, the border-defying return of these harmful chemicals to the US in the form of residue on imported foods.
