April 16, 2015

Narrated by Sean Penn, this eye-opening documentary explores the question: With thousands of untested chemicals in our everyday products, have we all become unwitting guinea pigs in one giant human experiment? The answer unfortunately comes in the form of rising rates of everything from cancer to infertility. Post Screening Q&A with Producer Chelsea Matter and special guests.

The Human Experiment lifts the veil on the shocking reality that thousands of untested chemicals are in our everyday products, our homes and inside of us. Simultaneously, the prevalence of many diseases continues to rise. From Oscar® winner Sean Penn and Emmy® winning journalists Dana Nachman and Don Hardy, The Human Experiment tells the personal stories of people who believe their lives have been affected by chemicals and takes viewers to the front lines as activists go head-to-head with the powerful and well-funded chemical industry. These activists bring to light a corrupt system that’s been hidden from consumers... until now.
