Documentary for the Global Environment Facility about ridding the planet of toxic chemicals
In May, 2013 Arrowhead produced Planet Detox, a half-hour film that highlighted the GEF’s efforts to support local communities as they work to reduce the harmful effects of chemicals in our environment. Filmed on location in the Phillipines, China, Mexico, Tanzania and Kenya in just 21 days, the film is a testament to Arrowhead’s ability to deliver amazing content under a tight deadline and budget. The film debuted at the COP6 conference in May of 2013.
Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs) are a group of chemicals that cause cancers, birth defects, learning disabilities and other health problems in humans and wildlife.
The GEF funds projects in developing countries to assist them in phasing out and eliminating these hazardous chemicals.
The story of POPs is the story of human health, and behind every GEF project there are dedicated men and women working every day to protect us all from these chemicals.
This film tells some of their amazing stories.
