Featured at the Sundance Film Festival and Hot Docs 2018, The Devil We Know unravels one of the biggest environmental scandals of our time as it traces a group of citizens in West Virginia who take on a powerful corporation after they discover it has knowingly been dumping the toxic chemical behind Teflon and Gore-Tex--now found in the blood of 99.7% of Americans--into the drinking water supply.

This special film premiere will be followed by a panel discussion featuring Jen Coleman of the Oregon Environmental Council and other local experts.

General admission is $10 and includes a pre-screening reception and general seating in our 150-seat cinema. A limited number of patron tickets, which include prime reserved seating and an invitation to meet special guests and enjoy a complimentary drink at the post-film reception, are also available. Please purchase advance tickets at peaceofthecity.com/tickets. Cash-only tickets can be purchased at the box office the night of the screening subject to availability.
