"Dark Waters" film screening with Silent Spring Institute

December 19, 2019 3:15pm

Newton, MA

Join Silent Spring Institute for a screening of the new film "Dark Waters"—the true story of a community in West Virginia whose drinking water was contaminated by a Dupont facility and the lawyer who takes on the chemical giant and exposes the truth.

The movie, starring Mark Ruffalo, Anne Hathaway and Tim Robbins, has received rave reviews from critics and viewers and we are excited to see it together.

The toxic chemicals featured in the film belong to a class substances called PFAS. PFAS are a top research priority for Silent Spring. We welcome you to stay after the screening for a Q&A with our experts to learn about PFAS and the work we're doing to address contamination affecting other communities in the country.

When: Thursday, December 19, 2019 at 3:15 PM
Where: 1296 Washington St, West Newton, Massachusetts 02465
Tickets: $10 per person.

You can purchase tickets in advance online, or at the box office (cash or check only) prior to the screening.

We hope you will join us on Thursday. Please bring your friends!
