On Wednesday, June 12th at 7:30 p.m. the Avon Theatre and Clean Water Action Connecticut present a special screening of the documentary UNACCEPTABLE LEVELS. Following the screening, filmmaker Ed Brown will be in attendance for a Q&A with the audience. Writer/Director/Producer Ed Brown dedicated 3 years to researching and developing this film and has interviewed the brightest minds regarding human health and its interaction with the environment. As a husband and father of two, ensuring the well being of his family, and investigating the best ways to do so, is his mission.
Take a look at all the things around you; the furniture, food, toys, clothes, everything you handle in your everyday life. Have you ever thought about what they are made of and how many different industrial components are in the products you buy? Currently, we have over 80,000 chemicals in our system of commerce. Approximately 200 of these synthetic industrial compounds are interacting with our cells every day. Until recently, science did not understand the long term relationship, but that is changing. This film explores the controversy through the eyes of a father on a personal journey as he attempts to bring the issue to light for all parents. Weaving a compelling narrative, Mr. Brown presents us with the story of where our chemical revolution has brought us and where, if we’re not vigilant, it may take us.
