Right to Harm

Right to Harm

Through the riveting stories of five rural communities, Right to Harm exposes the devastating public health impact factory farming has on many disadvantaged citizens throughout the United States.

Filmed across the country, the documentary chronicles the failures of state agencies to regulate industrial animal agriculture. Known formally as Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations – or CAFOs – these facilities produce millions of gallons of untreated waste that destroys the quality of life for nearby neighbours. Fed up with the lack of regulation, these disenfranchised citizens band together to demand justice from their legislators.

Right to Harm is part of our Horizon Hot Docs program; sharing untold stories from the fringes, exploring individual and community identity and celebrating and giving a platform to courageous change makers and activists.
