CH-11. The Devil We Know
USA, Feature Documentary, 2018, 88 min
Direct to BIFF from Sundance 2018In 1945, DuPont introduced Teflon to the marketplace and changed millions of American households. Today, a bio-persistent chemical used in the creation of those products is in the bloodstream of 99 percent of all Americans. A compelling and ultimately terrifying watch that will make you question everything in your kitchen, The Devil We Know lays out the history of DuPont’s use of the chemical C8, examines C8’s environmental and health impact (and the company’s awareness of that impact), and celebrates the everyday whistleblowers and fact finders who helped bring this crisis to the public’s attention.
