SFGFF is pleased to co-present THE DEVIL WE KNOW at the San Francisco Jewish Film Festival 38: July 19-August 5. In the film, victims in Parkersburg, West Virginia take on Dupont when they discover it has knowingly been using a dangerous toxic chemical.
Parkersburg, West Virginia, has been ground zero for the impact of chemicals used in Dupont’s Teflon and other products—toxic chemicals now found in the blood of 99 percent of Americans. Workers at the plant have given birth to deformed children and local farmers have seen their herds disfigured and decimated. As victims and activists take on the powerful corporation, Dupont continues on its course with the deadly use of the chemical.
