Inspired by a true story and directed by Todd Haynes, Dark Waters follows a tenacious attorney, Rob Bilott, as he uncovers the dark secret of a systematic coverup of PFAS drinking water pollution and connects a growing number of unexplained deaths to one of the world’s largest corporations. In the process, he risks everything — his future, his family — to expose the truth, protect people and restore safe drinking water.

RSVP: To view the film, please sign up using the RSVP form by Wednesday, November 18th. You will then be sent a link by Participant Media and instructions for accessing the film at your convenience through Monday, November 23rd. Viewing of the film is free, but you must register via the link above for Participant Media to send you the link to view the film.

The virtual screening will be followed by a panel discussing PFAS issues in New York State. The panel will include Rob Bilott, and several other key PFAS activists from around NYS. We look forward to this timely discussion about the serious issue of PFAS contamination affecting our communities, as well as where critical NY legislation on toxic chemicals, including PFAS, currently stands.
