Thirty years after Ford Motor Company began dumping toxic waste in their backyard–and after one too many premature deaths–the Ramapo Mountain Indians filed a major class-action lawsuit: Mann v. Ford. This compelling documentary reveals the story of how this tiny tribe and their team of passionate lawyers took on the ‘big dogs’–Ford and the Environmental Protection Agency.
Screenings and discussion will be led by scholars Leslie Wilson, PhD and Khemani Gibson, PhD.
Mann v Ford will be screened on Thursday, February 22 at 7 pm at Montclair Film’s Cinema 505 at 505 Bloomfield Ave, Montclair. Screenings will be available as a hybrid event for online participation through zoom and free to the public, registration required here.
