A lot of people have kidney failure, cancers, other illnesses that may be attributed to the water,” says Deanna.

Based on the work of ACLU of Michigan investigative reporter Curt Guyette, “Here’s To Flint” is an exhaustive probe into how the city of Flint was left exposed to lead-tainted drinking water for nearly two years. Guyette broke the story of lead contamination in the Flint water supply in July when he published an EPA memo highlighting toxic-waste levels of lead in the water flowing into one Flint residence. The ACLU hired local filmmaker Kate Levy to team up with Guyette to produce the documentary.
