Film about a Personal Investigation of Cancer to be shown

Submitted by Chris Brunner

(Norwich, NY – May 2013) The public is invited to the next free film showing of the current annual “Second Tuesday Film Series” at 7 p.m. Tuesday, May 14, in the Founders Room at the United Church of Christ, 11 West Main, Norwich.

This screening, another educational documentary on a current issue, is titled, “Living Downstream:  An Ecologist’s Personal Investigation of Cancer and the Environment.” The film is an adaptation of the book by that name by eco-biologist, Dr. Sandra Steingraber, and follows her during one pivotal year as she travels across North America to present scientific evidence, which ultimately helps break the silence between cancer and its links to toxins in the environment.

A cancer survivor herself, and scholar in residence at nearby Ithaca College, she is a prominent voice and leader in the grassroots anti-fracking movement in this state.

The film series sponsors, Chenango County Peace Action and Chenango Community Action for Renewable Energy (C-CARE), offer attendees a light supper at 6:30 before the show and encourage discussion afterwards.

Please note parking is available on the street, in the Hayes Street and County Office Building Parking lots, not in the church’s lot behind it.  For more information, please call Chris at 607-334-6095 or contact Ken at ccare@frontier.com.  Suggestions for future films and topics to explore are welcome.
