Atlanta filmmakers team up with CBS News to tackle America’s wastewater crisis
Feb 23, 2022
Director Elisa Gambino has a knack for tackling some deep schisms in America: divisions between rich and poor, Black and white, industrial profit and environmental concerns.
Gambino and her husband, Neal Broffman, a cinematographer and editor with their production company One Production Place, continue their commitment to storytelling with a deep vein of social consciousness in their CBS Reports docuseries “Wasteland.” The film debuts Feb. 24 on Paramount+, and is centered on the often tragic stories surrounding America’s failing sewage disposal system.
Gambino, a former CNN International journalist-turned-filmmaker and Collier Hills resident made her film debut with the meaty, close-to-home 2020 documentary, “Welcome to Pine Lake,” the first feature-length film released by CBSN Originals.
