Shot and edited almost entirely by Brown, it is the result of three years of arduous travel and research. Over 40 luminaries in environmental advocacy, science, and law participated in the creation of the film, granting interviews to the maverick director. Uniting the testimonies of experts across disciplines and areas of focus, ‘Unacceptable Levels’ is comprehensive in scope.
I made this movie because I couldn’t ignore the effects of chemicals on my family. I had to find out more. – Ed Brown
