On Tuesday, WKAR and the Flint Institute of Arts will host a screening of a new PBS documentary on the Flint Water Crisis. "Poisoned Water" is a new production from the acclaimed "NOVA" series. WKAR's Kevin Lavery spoke with NOVA senior executive producer Paula Apsell, who will be moderating the panel discussion at the screening.
The documentary studies the scientific aspects of the crisis that carried lead-tainted water into thousands of homes in Flint starting in 2014.
"I am excited about this screening, and of course I'm also very nervous, because we're showing this film to the people of Flint," said Apsell. "We have been entrusted with the responsibility of telling their story. And of course, I fervently hope that they will believe our work justifies their trust and confidence in us."
Limited seats are still available for the screening. More information and RESERVE SEATS HERE.
The panel discussion portion of the evening will be streamed live. See streaming information here.
