Documentary producer Chelsea Matter on The Human Experiment and the fight for cleaner products


Taking a sober look at the thousands of untested household chemicals triggering disease is enough to make a person panic and run for the hills. But the activists and filmmakers behind The Human Experiment, which screens on Saturday, February 22 as part of the Colorado Environmental Film Festival, do just the opposite: they wage a fight against the chemical industry and demand change. Westword spoke with independent producer Chelsea Matter about her work on The Human Experiment.
