Best of the Fests: The People vs. Agent Orange

March 5

THE PEOPLE VS. AGENT ORANGE is a gripping new documentary on the decades-long devastation caused by the use and cover-up of one of the most toxic chemicals ever used in the open. The People vs. Agent Orange follows Vietnamese activist Tran To Nga, who, in a French court, is suing the American chemical industry for poisoning her and her family in Vietnam.

And in Oregon, Carol Van Strum battles to stop the ongoing spraying of toxins by the timber industry. Both women resist intimidation and threats, bringing to light the ongoing, intergenerational catastrophe of chemical warfare and toxic herbicides.
