Ellen Page has made a star turn as a documentarian in recent years, co-hosting the Viceland queer travelogue show “Gaycation” with Ian Daniel and narrating environmental films such as “Vanishing of the Bees.”
Now, Page and Daniel have directed their own film, “There’s Something in the Water,” which premiered its official trailer yesterday.
Inspired by the book of the same name by Ingrid Waldron, the film sees Page returning to her childhood home of Nova Scotia, Canada, where the quality of life is drastically determined by one’s zip code.
As in much of North America, black and indigenous communities in Nova Scotia are often the most vulnerable to environmental hazards, such as proximity to toxic waste dumps and factories along with poor water supplies.
“There’s Something in the Water” arrives on Netflix on March 27.
