RIGHT TO HARM Screening + Q&A with Filmmaker Matt Wechsler

The Institute for the Future invites you to a screening of the newly released documentary from Exec. Producer Mark Bittman: RIGHT TO HARM.

Is the quality of our health diminished by certain farming techniques?

Are the effects of our diets more complex and extensive than we assume?

Through the riveting stories of five rural communities, RIGHT TO HARM exposes the devastating public health impact factory farming has on many disadvantaged citizens throughout the United States. Filmed across the country, the documentary chronicles the failures of state agencies to regulate industrial animal agriculture. Known formally as Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations – or CAFOs – these facilities produce millions of gallons of untreated waste that destroys the quality of life for nearby neighbors. Fed up with the lack of regulation, these disenfranchised citizens band together to demand justice from their legislators.

After the screening, Zeenab Aneez from the HEAL Food Alliance will facilitate Q&A with the filmmaker Matt Wechsler.
