Montclair Environmental Movie Night: Living Downstream

  • Montclair Library

  • Montclair Environmental Affairs office and Community Green present – Living Downstream– a film based on the acclaimed book by ecologist and cancer survivor Sandra Steingraber, Ph.D.

    This poetic film follows Sandra as she travels across North America, working to break the silence about cancer and its environmental links. We are on two journeys with Sandra: her private struggles with cancer and her public quest to bring attention to the urgent human rights issue of cancer prevention.

    But Sandra is not the only one who is on a journey—the chemicals against which she is fighting are also on the move. We follow these invisible toxins as they migrate to some of the most beautiful places in North America. Several experts in the fields of toxicology and cancer research make important cameo appearances in the film, highlighting their own findings on two pervasive chemicals: atrazine, one of the most widely used herbicides in the world, and the industrial compounds, polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs). Their work further illuminates the significant connection between a healthy environment and human health.

    Join us for the film and discussion following. This is one of a series of free Environmental Film Screenings put on by CommunityGreen.org. For more information contact Marnie Vyff at[masked] or [masked]
