What Lies Upstream

This investigative political thriller watches Cullen Hoback unearth the causes of the largest chemical contamination of drinking water in a generation. Hoback travels to West Virginia after a chemical spill poisoned the water supply of 300,000 Americans. When another crisis emerges in Flint, Michigan, he considers the possibility that the entire system for the protection of drinking water is fundamentally broken. The guidance of whistleblowers in Flint leads to the discovery of corruption at the highest levels in the federal regulatory agencies. Will these hidden forces inside the government be allowed to continue poisoning its own citizens? Discussion with director of photography and co-producer Vince Sweeney
