Safe drinking water should be a given—for all. But it’s not. Not even in the United States. Filmmaker Cullen Hoback takes us on a disturbing journey of discovery in his new film “What Lies Upstream” which premiered at the 2017 Slamdance Film Festival. Hoback sat down with me to talk about the making of the film, what was most shocking to him, and how he has changed his thoughts and actions after directly witnessing the effects of the chemicals dumped into a small town in West Virginia’s drinking water.
“What Lies Upstream” is a riveting and shocking film about the safety of our water. Documentaries like this give viewers an opportunity to not only learn, but also empowers us to make changes and protect ourselves.
Check back for a full review of the film soon.
