Join us on Earth Day for National Canadian Film Day! We have a free screening of the 2019 documentary Toxic Beauty.
Toxic Beauty is a documentary feature film with exclusive access to scientists, lawyers, advocates, regulators, politicians, a dynamic whistleblower, survivors and women who have lost their lives. It follows the class action lawsuit against Johnson&Johnson and the plaintiffs, personal stories of women fighting for justice in a race against time with this deadly disease.
Woven throughout the film is a human experiment. We document, as Boston University medical student, Mymy Nguyen, measures her chemical body burden from over 27 products. Scientists monitor her shocking results.
In the end, the film meets the companies and people who offer solutions and optimism for safer, toxicant free cosmetics.
Directed by Phyllis Ellis. 90 minutes
