'Natural State' looks at Carroll County herbicide fight

Posted By on Mon, Jan 31, 2011 at 12:49 PM


From Carroll County comes this good looking new documentary with a strong title, "The Natural State of America."

The conflict captured surrounds Carroll Electric Cooperative Corp. spraying herbicide on right of ways throughout the county, which, naturally, has farmers and environmentalists up in arms. And, if claims of contaminated water reaching the Buffalo River are true, should have you up in arms, too.

The Lovely County Citizen had a good primer on the situation several years back.

The film's Facebook page lists several upcoming private screenings, including one at the Oyster Bar in Little Rock in February. Otherwise, the page says its scheduled to debut this spring. Maybe at the Little Rock Film Fest?
