Screened locally at the 2012 Kansas International Film Festival, this documentary asks how we can ignore the links between cancer and the chemical contamination of our environment. The film is based on a widely acclaimed book by Sandra Steingraber, a biologist, environmentalist and cancer survivor.

Great doc about a biologists role in trying to educate people on the impact industries have on the environment. It is shocking to hear how the waterway near her house has been so severely affected that the number of species available has dropped significantly. The extras, I believe called mini movies or docs, are just as interesting to watch as the feature film itself - they expand upon points raised in the film, adding a greater amount of depth and understanding. Also great for teachers looking for something short to spur discussion.
