Based on the acclaimed book by ecologist and cancer survivor Sandra Steingraber, PhD, Living Downstream is an eloquent and cinematic feature-length documentary. This poetic 85-minute film follows Sandra during one pivotal year as she travels across North America, working to break the silence about cancer and its environmental links.
This one-night only film screening will be followed by an expert panel discussion featuring Maye Thompson, RN, PhD, Environmental Health Program Director for Oregon PSR.
