A well made documentary about a hazardous chemical used in firefighting foam that focuses on a closed Air Force base in Oscoda Michigan. It has a bit of the stridency and anecdotal evidence that are common in such films. It documents that high levels of the toxin have been measured in the water, fish and the featured people suffering from ailments in the area. It does not make a hysterical call for a ban. It criticizes the military for stonewalling and the environmental agencies for lack of action. As a disclosure, I'm a big critic of Sara Ganim's work on the Penn State Paterno/Sandusky scandal (for which she won a Pulitzer), which I believe is horrible.
A truly excellent, shocking and well-made film, which exposes how good people have campaigned for years for answers on a national scandal. It is brave, brilliantly told, has innovative cinematography, powerful stories and searching journalism. I highly recommend No Defense.
