TOXI-City will be shown on March 23, 2016 in DPAC.

TOXI-City is a combinatory narrative film by Roderick Coover and Scott Rettberg. The project imagines life in the Delaware River Estuary in a near future environment impacted by hurricanes, flooding, and widespread seepage of toxic chemicals in major population centers.
