Production Still Toxic Hot Seat #NoHoIFF
Toxic Hot Seat
Directed by James Redford, Kirby Walker

Chemical flame retardants are everywhere. Our furniture. Our homes. Our bodies. But do they work as promised? And are they making us sick? To answer these questions, TOXIC HOT SEAT dives into a deadly nexus of money, politics and power – and introduces us to a few brave citizens willing to stand their ground and demand an answer to an essential question: Why have we let 84,000 chemicals go largely unregulated in this country?


TOXIC HOT SEAT is environmental filmmaking at its pinnacle—revealing, horrifying, infuriating, compelling, and hopeful.


Produced by Brook Holston
