Film Screening: The Smell of Money

February 28 @ 4:30 pm - 7:00 pm

This event is a Community and Impact Screening of the documentary film The Smell of Money. From the film’s website: “A century after her grandfather claimed his freedom from slavery and the family land, Elsie Herring and her North Carolina community fight the world’s largest pork corporation for their freedom to enjoy fresh air, clean water, and a life without the stench of manure.” Since its release in Spring 2022, the film has received several awards, including the Jury Award for Documentary Feature at the 2022 Sarasota Film Festival and was named a Top Five Audience Favorite by Hot Docs. The film screening will be followed by a panel discussion with film directors and environmental justice community leaders.

Attendees will gather at 4:30 for refreshments and the screening will begin at 5 p.m., to be followed at 6:30 p.m. by a panel discussion with impacted residents and the film producer.
