Documentary on household chemicals
Saturday 19 December 2009
The documentary Chemerical, by Toronto filmmaker Andrew Nisker, follows a family with three teenagers as they go through their home eliminating harmful chemical products such as cleansers, in favor of homemade, eco-friendly concoctions.
“Chemerical” explores the life cycle of everyday householder cleaners and hygiene products to prove that, thanks to our clean obsession, we are drowning in sea of toxicity.
The film is at once humorous, as we watch the Goode family try to turn a new leaf by creating and living in a toxic-free home, and informative, as director Andrew Nisker works with many experts to give audiences the tools and inspiration to live toxic free.
“Chemerical” tackles the “toxic debate” in a truly informative and entertaining way, not only by raising awareness, but most importantly, by providing simple solutions.
“This is one of the scariest movies of the year! But there’s also enough usable info and simple advice that it ultimately gives hope,” says Mark McInnis, Vice-President, Production, MTV Canada.
