Following “An Inconvenient Sequel,” “The Cove,” and “Chasing Ice,” a pointed and thorough environmental documentary can have a lasting impact on the global conversation around pollution and climate change.
Filmmaker Stephanie Soechtig has been a leading voice in the genre and adds yet another environmental atrocity to the pile in her fourth feature film, “The Devil We Know.”
The film takes aim at powerful corporations such as Dupont and 3M, following a group of whistleblowers who claim both companies knew of the harmful environmental effects that the patented chemical Teflon had on the residents of Parkersburg, West Virginia and covered up the facts for decades.
“The Devil We Know” premieres October 16 on iTunes.
