Science Movie Night: Semper Fi
This film is presented in conjunction with Salt Lake City Water Week.
When Marine Corps Master Sgt. Jerry Ensminger’s nine-year old daughter Janey died of a rare type of leukemia, his world collapsed. His search for answers led to the discovery of one of the largest water contamination incidents in U.S. history.
Semper Fi: Always Faithful follows his fight as it reveals a grave injustice at North Carolina’s Camp Lejeune and a looming environmental crisis at military sites across the country.
Join us for a discussion of local ground water contamination issues with Salt Lake City Water Quality and Treatment Administrator Florence Reynolds following the film.
Directors: Rachel Libert and Tony Hardmon
