About the Film:  When a corporate hog farm moves in––uninvited––on land her grandfather had purchased after claiming his freedom from slavery, Elsie Herring decides to fight back. But as her rural community becomes the epicenter of the pork industry’s explosion in America, Elsie’s struggle to save her family’s home and heritage turns into a battle against one of the world’s most powerful companies and its deadly pollution.  Her North Carolina community comes together in a fight for their rights to clean air, pure water, and a just and sustainable food system.  This Earth Day, join us for an inspiring documentary about real-life environmental heroes.  Environmental Justice & Sustainability Speaker Series, hosted by the Center for the Blue Economy at the Middlebury Institute of International Studies.  Discussion and reception with sustainable food & wine follow the screening.
