Living Downstream, an eloquent and cinematic feature-length film, is based on the acclaimed book by ecologist and cancer survivor Sandra Steingraber, Ph.D., dubbed the Rachel Carson of her generation.

Dr. Steingraber's poetic and haunting narration traces her year across North America, working to break the silence about cancer and its environmental links. By doing so, she vividly recounts not only her own struggle with cancer but also her struggle with the public and private policies that may contribute to the causes of this disease.

Living Downstream is a powerful reminder of the intimate connection between the health of our bodies, air, land, and water, and the importance of individual activism.
