Tucson, AZ - The Loft Cinema
3233 E Speedway Blvd

Free screening of the short film Unnecessary Evil, followed by the full length documentary Circle of Poison. After the screenings there will be a Q & A.

Unnecessary Evil
Short film by Justin Clifton about uranium mines tailings pollution in the Colorado River affecting the Havasupai First Nations peoples in Arizona.

Circle of Poison
Documentary about agro-pesticide pollution in international lands in India, Argentina and Mexico. This also effects US food consumption and first nation lands.

The proximity of pesticide use in Yaqui communities in Sonora Mexico near to Tucson, as well as other international locales make this a poignant film for Tucson audiences. The films illustrate corporate malfeasance, circular lobbying rotations in DC, and health effects of unjust environmental practices. PSR-AZ links the environmental and nuclear industries as significant polluters.

Co-sponsored by PSR Arizona and International Indian Treaty Council. This event is accessible to people with disabilities.
