Join The Land Connection and local sponsors in welcoming Dr. Sandra Steingraber and film-maker Chanda Chevannes to the Illinois screenings of the new documentary that explores the connections between chemicals in our environment (including agricultural chemicals) and cancer.
Immediately following each screening is a Q/A session with central IL native and internationally-recognized scientist, author, and cancer-survivor Sandra Steingraber, and Living Downstream documentary filmmaker Chanda Chevannes. At the Normal Theater, they will be joined by a panel of local organic farmers providing healthy food while enhancing soil, air, and water.
Visit www.livingdownstream.com for more information about the film, including a sneak preview. And please come to a screening near you!
