Documentary takes hard look at Lake Erie algae plague

“The Erie Situation,” a new documentary film from the Great Lakes Young Professionals Network and produced by Great Lakes Outreach Media, explores the confluence of science, public sentiment, politics, and the powerful farming lobby as Ohio wrestles with how to confront the drivers of toxic algae in one of the Great Lakes.
The 72-minute documentary focuses on Point Place, Ohio, and the travails of one man in particular, Kenny Sabin. Point Place is a Toledo suburb right on the shore of Lake Erie, which has been plagued by toxic blue green algae for the past decade and a half.
