The film focuses on the PFAS contamination problem in Oscoda, Michigan, as a case study into how the U.S. military has failed to protect human health and the environment around the nation and the world. The PFAS contamination in Oscoda was discovered nearly 10 years ago, making it the first PFAS site in Michigan and the first PFAS military site in the world. The film's director, Sara Ganim, is a former CNN correspondent who won the Pulitzer Prize for breaking the Jerry Sandusky sex abuse scandal at Penn State; she also has done extensive reporting on water issues in other communities in the U.S, including Flint. Here's a link to the trailer for the film.
