Bloom Collective to host screening of film Living Downstream June 7

May 29, 2012

Next Thursday, June 7, the Bloom Collective will be hosting a screening of a powerful new documentary entitled, Living Downstream.

Based on the acclaimed book by ecologist and cancer survivor Sandra Steingraber, Ph.D., Living Downstream is an eloquent and cinematic documentary film. This poetic film follows Sandra during one pivotal year as she travels across North America, working to break the silence about cancer and its environmental links. Sandra is not the only one who is on a journey—the chemicals against which she is fighting are also on the move.

The film follows these invisible toxins as they migrate to some of the most beautiful places in North America. These chemicals enter our bodies and how, once inside, scientists believe they may be working to cause cancer. Steingraber calls on all of us to be carcinogen abolitionists, where instead of just treating cancer, we abolish it.

After the film there will be a discussion. This film is open to the public. For more information, go to the Facebook event page. $3 suggested donation – light refreshments will be provided.
