1:15PM - Right to Harm

USA, 2019, 81 mins, Directors: Matt Wechsler & Annie Speicher

Through the riveting stories of five rural communities, Right to Harm exposes the devastating public health impact factory farming has on many disadvantaged citizens throughout the United States.  Filmed across the country, the documentary chronicles the failures of state agencies to regulate industrial animal agriculture.  Known formally as Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations (or CAFOs) these facilities produce millions of gallons of untreated waste that destroys the quality of life for nearby neighbors.  Fed up with the lack of regulation, these disenfranchised citizens band together to demand justice from their legislators.

Four indigenous environmental leaders embark on an extraordinary trans-continental journey from the Canadian plains to deep into the heart of the Amazonian jungle to unite the peoples of North and South America and deepen the meaning of “Climate Justice.” The Condor &  the Eagle offers a glimpse into a developing spiritual renaissance as the four protagonists learn from each other’s long legacy of resistance to colonialism and its extractive economy. Their path through the jungle takes them on an unexpectedly challenging and liberating journey, which will forever change their attachment to the Earth and to one another.
