About the Film

Stink! is a first-person story about one father's absurd journey to find out what kinds of chemicals are hidden in a pair of his kid's pajamas. But instead of getting a straight answer, director Jon Whelan stumbles on an even bigger issue in America, which is that some products on our store shelves are not safe—by design. Stink! takes you on a madcap journey from the retailer to the laboratory, through corporate boardrooms, down back alleys and into the halls of Congress. Follow Whelan as he clashes with political and corporate operatives all trying to protect the darkest secrets of the chemical industry. You won't like what you smell.

(91 min) US | Director/Producer: Jon J. Whelan

Stink! is a part of the Camera As Witness: Humanity is Indivisible Stanford Summer Human Rights Program, which is moderated by Jasmina Bojic, Camera As Witness Program Director and Founder of the international documentary film festival, UNAFF.
