We are honoured to announce our collaboration with Dir. Alan Adelson and Dir. Kate Taverna as a technical/research advisor and outreach coordinator on their upcoming film, "The People vs. Agent Orange" (2020), which brings to light the toxic legacy of Agent Orange around the world, after the U.S. war in Viet Nam. The film features Tran To Nga and the lead up to her landmark case in Paris against the chemical manufacturers of Agent Orange and other herbicides used during the war and, more recently, in the Pacific Northwest of the U.S. The film will have a virtual theater run starting March 5, 2021 via theaters across the U.S. and will air on PBS in June.  We will be coordinating and participating in Webinar discussions about the film and the issues it raises.

Talk to our team and experts to learn more.
