I Didn’t Have Any Formal Film Training Before Making The Movie STINK – Jon Whelan Full Interview




After purchasing brand new pajamas for his young daughters as a Christmas gift, single father Jon Whelan is troubled when opening the packaging releases a foul odor. Determined to uncover the source of this mysterious stench and whether it poses a health risk to his daughters, Whelan quickly discovers that manufacturers and retailers in the U.S. have no obligation to reveal chemicals used in their products, even if those chemicals can cause cancer, birth defects, and reproductive damage.

Entertaining, enlightening, and at times almost absurd, 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.

STINK! is directed, produced, and written by Jon Whelan. Editor and writer is Bryan Gunnar Cole. Produced by Krista Saponara and original music by Erin O’Hara. Daniel Carter is the director of photography.
