Ellen Page, Dal Health Researcher’s Film Releases on Netflix – Dal News

In March 2020 Netflix subscribers will have a chance to see the documentary There’s Something in the Water that moved audiences and critics at the TIFF (Toronto International Film Festival ) and FIN (Atlantic International Film Festival) last fall.

Dalhousie University Faculty of Health associate professor Ingrid Waldron co-produced the documentary with actress/filmmaker Ellen Page, Ian Daniel, and Julia Sanderson.

The film is based on Dr. Waldron’s book of the same name which examines the legacy of environmental racism and its health impacts on Indigenous and Black communities across Canada
