Summary In this **Oscar** nominated documentary, a New Jersey family discovers their well is being poisoned by a landfill while local and state officials assure them their water is safe to drink. A 5-year saga of bureaucratic neglect and court inaction reveals the Kaler’s drinking water could have been bottled as paint remover. The landfill is later declared a Superfund site but as of 2018 has yet to be zcleaned upy. As regulations protecting our water are again under attack, IN OUR WATER is both cautionary tale and map to activism. Educators, environmentalists, government bureaucrats, politicians, citizens and water drinkers everywhere can benefit from experiencing this exceptional movie. Nominated for Best Documentary, Features at the **Academy Awards**. Nominated for Best Documentary at the **Chicago International Film Festival**. Winner of the Columbia DuPont Award for Journalistic Excellence
