Work in Progress FLINT Screenings held in in Washington DC and San Francisco
A sold-out crowd of more than 400 viewed a 45-minute reel of scenes from the new FLINT feature documentary in Washington DC on March 17, 2017
The special presentation was organized by the nation’s largest environmental film festival, and was held at the historic Carnegie Institution for Science.
The overflow audience was clearly shocked by the footage, and a vigorous discussion followed the screening, with a special panel that included Nayyirah Shariff of Flint Rising, Anurag Mantha from Virginia Tech University and Talia Burford of the Center for Public Integrity.
Broad Forder, Director of Programming, Environmental Film Festival in the Nation’s Capital, said:
"Anthony Baxter's FLINT work-progress screening was, without question, one of the highlights of the 2017 festival. Screening to a sold-out house, Anthony offered an intimate look at how the water crisis continues to affect individuals and families in the Flint community. It is always a pleasure to screen Anthony's work at at the festival and we look forward to seeing the finished version of this important film."
Director Baxter was also invited to west coast to screen the work in progress on April 23 to another appreciative audience at the San Francisco Green Film Festival, where the panel included a representative of Clean Water Action.
