UofL Visiting Assistant Professor of Communication, Remington Smith, MFA, directed this new documentary feature about the struggle for environmental justice in western Louisville. 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.

There will be a question and answer session with the director following the screening.
