NFB Sunday Cinema: Toxic Trespass

May 10, 2009 - 6:00pm

 NFB SUNDAY CINEMA proudly presents

Toxic Trespass

Pre-screening discussion with Mishka Lysack

In Toxic Trespass, intrepid filmmaker Barri Cohen launches an investigation into the effects of the chemical soup around us. She starts with her 10-year-old daughter, whose blood carries carcinogens like benzene and the long-banned DDT. Then, Cohen heads out to Windsor and Sarnia: Canadian toxic hotspots, with startling clusters of deadly diseases.

“By looking at how environmental toxins affect the most vulnerable among us, Cohen exposes not only how children have become "lab rats in a vast uncontrolled experiment," but how unwilling the government has been to respond to the crisis.—Globe and Mail, May 2008
