" …powerful…haunting." 

Toronto Star


"…a deftly interwoven examination of how cancer is experienced, treated and understood…forceful, reasoned and visually impressive. "

Canadian Medical Association Journal



Based on the acclaimed book by ecologist, author, and cancer survivor Sandra Steingraber, Ph.D., Living Downstream is an award-winning documentary film by Canadian filmmaker Chanda Chevannes. 

Living Downstream has won awards and accolades from critics, activists, and audiences. It is an inspiring, hard-hitting, and eloquent portrayal of ecologist and cancer survivor Sandra Steingraber's efforts to break the silence about the links between environmental pollutants and cancer, and a passionate reminder of the intimate connection between the health of our bodies and the health of our air, land, and water.
