The film, a passion project by director Anthony Baxter and narrated by actor Alec Baldwin, dives into the tragedy and the struggle Flint residents dealt with at the beginning of the water crisis, and the impact still being felt today. It is, for many still in denial, a reality check.

“Like this incredible movie shares,” said Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha in a press release, “Everybody was being dismissed and denied and attacked. Anybody who raised any concerns about the water in Flint was being silenced.”

In telling a story that has not seen an end, Baxter will give a voice to those impacted by the devastation that was the Flint Water Crisis.

“I feel it’s crucially important that – the people of Flint are not forgotten. Hopefully, this film will shed a fresh spotlight on their ongoing plight", Baxter said.

FLINT: Who Can You Trust? will be shown at a special viewing Friday, May 6th at NCG Cinema Trillium in Grand Blanc. Showtime is 6:30 pm with the Director Anthony Baxter & other special guests. The film will also be shown  Saturday, May 7, 7:30 pm at Cinema Detroit. To purchase tickets click here.
