UofL Visiting Assistant Professor of Communication, Remington Smith, MFA, directed this documentary feature about the struggle for environmental justice in western Louisville, which features research by UofL Urban & Public Affairs professor, Dr. John Gilderbloom.

In the film we meet Louisville resident Monika Burkhead as she struggles to move her entire house to another county to escape the hazards of living near chemical manufacturing plants, a coal burning power plant and a toxic landfill site. 

Learn more about the injustice done to local communities by joining us for a screening of the movie followed with a live question forum with the director and activists featured in the film.

Enjoy vegetarian refreshments before and after the film as well.
