The Caltech Y Social Activism Speaker Series is pleased to present the documentary, "Company Town", at 4PM in BBB B180 followed by a Q&A with the directors.

Filmed over nearly four years, "Company Town" follows one man's journey to save his town. He's up against one of the nation's largest paper mill and chemical plants, Georgia-Pacific, owned by billionaire brothers Charles Koch and David Koch of Koch Industries, for which many neighbors work their entire lives, making products like, Angel Soft, Brawny Paper Towels, Quilted Northern, and Dixie paper cups.

This is a rare look inside one hidden American town, where the company rules and the government's negligence pushes them to stand up and fight for justice.  Crossett, Arkansas represents all towns across America polluted by big business.

The screening will begin at 4pm with the Q&A after.

Light refreshments will be provided.  RSVP here.
