The Beloved Community

By Pamela Calvert/Plain Speech

Pam Calvert’s film on health issues arising from endocrine disrupters in the First Nation’s community surrounded on three sides by the chemical in Sarnia Ontario, across from Port Huron Michigan, is in rough cut and will be shown locally in mid September. The nerve center of Canada’s petrochemical industry, Sarnia, Ontario once enjoyed the highest standard living in the country—but now the bill has come due, in compromised environmental and community health. How do you stay in the home you love when the price you pay may be not only your own life, but the safety of future generations? In The Beloved Community, a petrochemical town faces a toxic legacy head-on. THE BELOVED COMMUNITY is a co-presentation of Detroit Public Television. Jeff Forster, Executive Producer.
