"A stunning documentary..."
-Media Sandbox, Michigan State University
"Grassroots organizations and activists ignored by national news take center stage in From Flint: Voices of a Poisoned City."
"In this thought-provoking program, advocates and locals share their stories... Putting a face on the Flint water crisis, this moving program underscores the need for government and environment diligence."
"Illuminating and infuriating, From Flint delivers a heartfelt condemnation of how local officials allowed this situation to occur and still display an unwillingness to resolve it."
"This documentary is an outstanding accomplishment...From Flint is a remarkable collection of once-underrepresented voices that can now be heard by policymakers at all levels of government."
-The Grassroots Journal
"Highly Recommended. Filmmaker Elise Conklin's stinging documentary From Flint quickly reprises the situation before getting to its real purpose: meeting and hearing the story from ordinary people among Flint's population of 100,000... Watching this film is like going to a community meeting and encountering your flesh-and-blood neighbors instead of reading about faceless victims of an unconscionable scandal."
"Recommended. The film gives a good sense of the resolve that was required to take on local officials, and prevail. The viewer will also sense the emotions that residents experienced during the fight, and the feelings of betrayal and frustration they are left with now. The video presentation and editing are of high quality."

"As this short film explains, Flint switched from Detroit's water system - one of the cleanest in the world - to draw water from the Flint River which was polluted with lead."
-Anthropology Review Database
"This heartfelt student film focuses on the tragic results of government ineptitude and cynicism."
