Chemical Valley
POV Season 4
Feature Film | 07/08/1991

A West Virginia community is deeply divided over potentially life and death questions. The local chemical plant produces the same deadly toxins that caused the disaster in Bhopal, India and a series of accidents has residents alarmed. The area’s fragile economy is dependent on the jobs provided by the plant. The efforts to come to grips with this conflict form the dramatic core of Mimi Pickering and Anne Lewis Johnson’s timely, probing film.
