TOXIC HOT SEAT - Environmental Film Festival in the Nation's Capital
7:00 p.m.

Carnegie Institution for Science

Co-Presented with Safer Chemicals, Healthy Families and International Association of Fire Fighters

TOXIC HOT SEAT (USA, 2013, 90 min.)  Chemical flame retardants are everywhere --- in our furniture, our homes and our bodies. Yet flame retardants don't seem to stop fires. They do, however, seem to make us sick. So why do we use them? To answer that question, Toxic Hot Seat follows a courageous group of firefighters, mothers, journalists, scientists, politicians and activists as they fight to expose what they assert is a shadowy campaign of deception that has left a toxic legacy in America's homes and bodies for nearly 40 years.  This incisive film reveals the ill effects caused by a five billion dollar industry. Directed and produced by James Redford and Kirby Walker.

Panel discussion moderated by NBC4 News Anchor Wendy Rieger with filmmakers James Redford and Kirby Walker and Andy Igrejas, Director, Safer Chemicals, Healthy Families, follows screening.

FREE. Reservations required.
