About the films

  • Troubled water (Rotten: Season 2, Episode 3)

    Troubled Water is an episode in the documentary series, Rotten Season 2 which exposes the explosive growth of the bottled water industry that has driven corporations to dip into public water supplies and left vulnerable citizens thirsty.

  • The bleeding edge

    America has the most technologically advanced health care system in the world, yet medical interventions have become the third leading cause of death, and the overwhelming majority of high-risk implanted devices never require a single clinical trial. The film takes a look at the $400 billion medical device industry, examining lax regulations, corporate cover-ups, and profit driven incentives that put patients at risk daily.
