Notes on the film
A film about fluoropolymers (PFAS), carcinogenic substances used in the production of Teflon and liquid-repellent surfaces. Thrilling documentary with an alarming message.
"The Devil We Know" is a riveting tale of long-term irresponsibility and injustice. – Variety
A blood-boiling eco-doc whose story is far from over… The doc will agitate on the fest circuit, and likely prompt more than a few viewers to toss their Teflon pans into the trash. – The Hollywood Reporter
Sundance Film Festival Director John Cooper says "The Devil We Know" is a film that could have a worldwide impact. – IndieWire
