NYC PREMIERE Mossville, Louisiana, a community founded by formerly enslaved African Americans, was once a thriving, safe haven. Today it’s a breeding ground for petrochemical plants and their spewing black clouds. Many residents are forced from their homes; those that stay suffer from prolonged exposure to contamination and pollution. Amid this chaos stands one man, Stacey Ryan, who refuses to abandon his family’s land and fights for basic human rights in this powerful portrait of resilience.
