THE PEOPLE VS. AGENT ORANGE is a disturbing, important, and gripping new documentary on the decades long devastation caused by the use and cover up of one the most toxic chemicals ever used in the open.

Two courageous women, one American and one Vietnamese, fight at great personal cost to stop the use of toxic agricultural chemicals and to hold a mammoth industry accountable for the 40-year cover-up of Agent Orange. The Agent Orange catastrophe did not end with the war in Vietnam. Today, all over the world, a primary component of that toxic herbicide controls weeds in farming, forestry, parks–even on children’s playgrounds. The chemical wreaks havoc on the human genome, causing deformed births and deadly cancers. After decades of struggle and tragic personal losses, two heroic women are leading a worldwide movement to end the plague and hold the manufacturers accountable. In France, Tran To Nga is suing the American chemical industry for poisoning her Vietnamese family. And in America, Carol Van Strum exposes the continuing use of toxic herbicides. Incriminating documents disappear. Activists and their children are threatened and die.
