Movies at Riverside: “Flint: The Poisoning of an American City”

February 23 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Multipurpose Room

Join us for a screening of the movie “Flint: The Poisoning of an American City”, which traces the timeline of the city’s interaction with the Flint River – from the continued abuse and neglect of both city infrastructure and environmental regulations, to subsequent population decline, through to Michigan’s 2013 appointing of outside emergency managers. This poisonous mix of factors created a crisis which has gone on for five years, resulting in record high levels of lead in the drinking water of the city. “Flint” explores the critical question of how this could happen in America and how this event should serve as a warning for the rest of the country.Two screenings at 1:00 pm and 3:00 pm.
