From the Utah Film Center, Davey Davis, Film Program Manager, talked about UFC's Tuesday night movie screening and panel conversations featuring MossvilleWhen Great Trees Fall:

  • "Mossville, Louisiana: A once-thriving community founded by formerly enslaved and free people of color, and an economically flourishing safe haven for generations of African American families. Today it’s a breeding ground for petrochemical plants and their toxic black clouds. Many residents are forced from their homes, and those that stay suffer from prolonged exposure to contamination and pollution. Amid this chaos and injustice stands one man who refuses to abandon his family’s land - and his community"
