Please join Film Sprout and NW Documentary on August 16 for the final film in the Peace of the City Film Series summer series: The Devil We Know.
An exposé of the DuPont corporation's decades-long efforts to deny the adverse effects of chemicals used in Teflon kitchenware, The Devil We Know unravels one of the biggest environmental scandals of our time.
Probing and eye-opening, the film focuses its lens on a courageous group of citizens in West Virginia, following along as they take on DuPont after discovering it has knowingly been dumping the toxic chemical behind Teflon—now found in the blood of 99.7% of Americans—into the local drinking water supply.Find out more »

Join Representative Power for an exclusive advance screening of The Human Element and a conversation about critical environmental efforts coming up in the Oregon 2019 legislative session.
From the award-winning documentary team that produced Chasing Ice comes producer Matthew Testa and renowned photographer James Balog's newest film that reveals how environmental change is affecting the lives of everyday Americans. Critics describe The Human Element as a "compelling...and visually stunning documentary," and one that shows "why we, as a society, can no longer turn a blind eye to the drastically changing world around us."
Doors open at 6:30pm. Come early to grab seats and participate in an important conversation and short preview with environmental leaders at 7:00pm moderated by Representative Power. Together, we can ensure that environmental justice is a top priority in the 2019 legislative session.
Tickets are $15 and can be purchased in advance or at the doors. Advance purchase recommended as this event may sell out.
