RIGHT TO HARM interweaves the compelling stories of five rural communities across the U.S., stretching from the Southwest through the Midwest to the East Coast. Farmers, mothers, scientists, and politicians share intimate stories of how their lives have been forever changed by factory farming. The film documents the failure of government agencies to regulate factory farming and questions whether citizens have a right to clean air and water.
A discussion with Franz-Theo Gottwald (Schweisfurth Foundation) will follow the screening.
The film will be shown in English and the discussion will be held in German.
Free and open to the public.
