A cancer diagnosis is the beginning of an unplanned journey. There is a story behind each one.
This is my story.
We should become carcinogen abolitionists. The chemicals simply need to be phased out. When carcinogens are deliberately introduced into the environment, some number of vulnerable persons are consigned to death.
from the film, Living Downstream
Based on the acclaimed book by ecologist and cancer survivor Sandra Steingraber, Ph.D., Living Downstream is an eloquent and cinematic feature-length documentary. This poetic and character-driven film follows Sandra during one pivotal year as she travels across North America, working to break the silence about cancer and its environmental links.
Living Downstream is produced by The People’s Picture Company. It will be released for film festival screenings in spring 2010 and it will be available for educational and organizational screenings in Fall 2010. The educational DVD will be available for pre-order in April 2010.
Also note that Sandra will be contributing to the supplementary resources that are being created to accompany the DVDs of the film
