Summary, etc.:
Unacceptable Levels examines chemical exposure in daily life from the perspective of filmmaker Ed Brown, a father seeking to understand the world in which he and his wife are raising their children. From the chemical revolution of the 1940s through today's prevalence of chemicals in industrial and consumer products, the documentary seeks to impart greater understanding of the proliferation--and compounding effects--of commonly used chemicals. The ultimate mission of the film is to educate, engage questioning around the potential human risk and to propose ideas on what can be done about it. The film is anchored in Brown's own poignant experiences and follows his personal journey purposed in uncovering the impact of chemicals on his family. To create this debut documentary, Brown traveled extensively to interview top minds in the fields of science, industry, government, environmental advocacy and law. Weaving their commentary and perspectives into a compelling narrative, Brown chronicles the history of industrial chemicals in the U.S.--and their lack of regulation--and provides us with an in-depth look at its presence in everyday life...from agriculture to drinking water, cosmetics to toys.
