Award-Winning Film on Toxic Chemicals in the Environment, produced by Redwood City mother, screening in Redwood City this Wednesday.


The toxic fire at Sims Metal Management and shelter-in-place in Redwood City is UNACCEPTABLE. Incredibly scary when this gets so close to home - "accidents" like this are happening all over the country on a regular basis, because of the lack of regulation and the profit motive being placed before public health. 

I am a Redwood City resident and just produced a documentary called "Unacceptable Levels" which has already won awards at film festivals in Paris and Rio de Janeiro, and is now screening throughout the U.S. Ed Brown’s new film is about the chemicals in our bodies and how they got there. It dissects the ways chemicals saturate our homes and environment amid a backdrop of a glaring lack of regulation. The film’s twelve acts chronicle the results of the post-WWII chemical boom and detail common avenues of exposure, from food to fluoride to toxic sludge. It underscores need for political reform due to the unacceptable facts.http://unacceptablelevels.com

The film is screening in Redwood City - one night only - this Wednesday at 6:30 PMat the Cinemark Redwood Downtown 20, 825 Middlefield Rd. The film will be followed by an expert panel with Beth Terry, renowned author of "Plastic-Free: How I Kicked the Plastic Habit and How You Can Too" (http://myplasticfreelife.com/) and Terry Lyngso of Redwood City's own Lyngso Garden Materials (http://bitly.com/lyngsoGM), sharing tips on environmentally sustainable home landscaping.

This screening already sold out once and was moved into a larger theater. Limited seats are available at this time, but we hope to be upgraded again if we sell out tomorrow: http://www.tugg.com/events/5934
