Environmental Health Trust launches its inaugural eight-part Environmental Health Film Series in Jackson Hole, Wyoming showcasing award-winning documentaries about how the environment shapes the quality and quantity of our lives from birth onward. The Series features stories of environmental disasters and pollution – from the London smog to cell phones to lead in Flint’s water supply – and includes original archival footage of what went wrong, what happened and what we do now. Each film will be followed by a short discussion with expert scientists and some of the original filmmakers. Showings will take place at Teton County Public Library (Most at at 6:00-7:30 pm) and will be free admission.

“Many of these films owe their origins to dramatic events of the last century, however, since that time, tremendous progress has been made on many fronts. Thanks to modern efforts to control emissions from transportation and stationary sources, people are no longer dropping dead from air pollution. But other problems are emerging that few people realize.”Devra Davis MPH, PhD, President of Environmental Health Trust (a local Jackson Hole nonprofit).
