Join Coastal Carolina Riverwatch’s Waterkeeper, Riley Lewis, at Farm Aid for a viewing of The Smell of Money, an award-winning documentary film centering the experience of Elsie Herring, former CCRW Board Director, and her neighbors in Duplin County, NC.
“The smell of money” is what Big Pork calls the stench of pig waste in the air in eastern North Carolina, where much of the world’s bacon and barbecue is made. But to Elsie and others who live near the state’s giant pig factories, the revolting odor is a call to battle against generations of injustice.
A story about the power of love for one’s family and community, The Smell of Money calls upon viewers to see the people behind what’s on our plates – and to join the fight for a better future for us all.
A discussion will follow, moderated by Ghanja O’Flaherty, Co-Director of Infrastructure and Development with the North Carolina Environmental Justice Network and will include the filmmaker Jamie Berger, Duplin County resident Ms. Rene Miller, and farmers and factory farm organizers fighting a dairy CAFO and poultry CAFO in Oregon.
