There’s Something in the Water

There’s Something in the Water documents the injustices and injuries caused by environmental racism on Indigenous and African Nova Scotian women fighting to protect their communities, their land, and their futures. Canadian filmmaker, actor, and activist Elliot Page reveals a portrait of ecological and social disaster in his home province, where rural areas are plagued by toxic fallout from industrial development and your postal code determines your health.
