Virtual Documentary Night, Emory Office of Critical Event Preparedness and Response
Category : News/Events
Virtual Documentary Night is a monthly online event designed to give people the opportunity to engage in meaningful discussions on a wide range of topics with people from various backgrounds. This Virtual Documentary Night is in collaboration with Emory University’s Office of Critical Event Preparedness and Response. They serve as the center for Emory enterprise-wide planning and coordinated response to catastrophic events affecting Emory and the broader community. The office strives to empower our community through a variety of initiatives across preparedness, training, community outreach, education, and more to strengthen disaster resiliency.
We are meeting on October 2 to talk about the documentary, Flint’s Deadly Water. This FRONTLINEdocumentary, drawing from a two-year investigation, uncovers the extent of a deadly Legionnaires’ disease outbreak during the Flint water crisis — and how officials failed to stop it. We will be joined by Abby Ellis (Journalist and Director) and Kayla Ruble (Journalist and Producer) for a special guest Q&A! You can watch the film for free HERE. You will first watch the film on your own prior to our event. For the event we will meet on Zoom, where you participate in multiple rounds of small group discussions with a different discussion prompt and different randomized groups for each round. This gives you the opportunity to hear a variety of perspectives throughout the night. We will end with the Q&A before closing out the night with final words and announcements from Emory University’s Office of Critical Event Preparedness and Response. Again, you must watch the film on your own BEFORE the event. You will receive the Zoom link and password once you register for the event.
