Suzzanne & Brett Cromwell

Founded by avid film buffs Suzzanne and Brett Cromwell, the Lowell Film Collaborative (LFC) is a grassroots initiative dedicated to enhancing the burgeoning artistic community of Lowell, Massachusetts, by celebrating the art of motion pictures. Through film & video screenings, discussions, film festivals & series events, the LFC strives to support local and regional cinema and motion picture artists while developing partnerships with local businesses and organizations. In addition to Suzzanne and Brett, the LFC includes a community of supporters who are like-minded film enthusiasts that share their desire to see more independent film in Lowell, AND the Merrimack Valley.

There’s nothing like experiencing truly wonderful film with friends, family, and community. Though we can’t be together yet, we look forward to sharing and enjoying these events online!

Join the Lowell Film Collaborative and our co-presenters, Lowell Parks & Conservation Trust, for Impactful Connections, our 9th season of exciting, dynamic, thought-provoking, and environmentally-minded independent films! From diving deep into our oceans to mountain top adventures, from exploring solutions to climate change to celebrating world cultures, from wildlife preservation to the effects of our own carbon footprint on the planet, all of the acclaimed films in our Eco Film Series reflect today’s global headlines and are carefully curated with our devoted audience members in mind.

A big thank you to this year’s Eco Film sponsors, Enterprise Bank, Eno Martin Donahue & Roth, PLLC , and Mill City Environmental Corporation for making this film series possible. We especially wish to thank Lowell National Historical Park for their ongoing partnership for the past 9 years.

Join us for the FIFTH film of our series!


Complicit

COMPLICIT (2014)
Co-directed by Heather White and Lynn Zhang

TUESDAY, MAY 25 @ 7PM
RSVP to join this event and get the Zoom link >>

Filmed below the radar in China and sparking a global campaign with the release of its first trailer, Complicit tells the story of Chinese migrant worker Yi Yeting, and his effort to eliminate life-threatening benzene from workplaces producing smartphones. While struggling with occupational leukemia, he discovers many others have also been poisoned at tech factories in the Pearl River Delta. With unparalleled access and intimate portraits of the workers behind our devices, co-directors Heather White and Lynn Zhang take us on an 8,000-mile journey in their acclaimed film about family, the challenges faced by everyday Chinese citizens, and the young workers sacrificing everything to make the devices we cannot live without.
