BELFAST –  “Living Downstream”, an eloquent feature-length documentary that charts the life and work of biologist, cancer survivor and cancer prevention advocate Sandra Steingraber, Ph.D., will take place at 7 p.m. Monday, April 4, at the Colonial Theatre, 163 High Street in Belfast. A $5  donation is suggested..

“Living Downstream” is based on Steingraber’s book that documents the growing body of scientific evidence that links human health with the health of our environment. Part scientific exploration, part personal journey, the film follows Steingraber during a pivotal year in her life: as a biologist and author, speaking to groups across North America about cancer prevention; and as a cancer survivor, when she receives ambiguous results from a cancer screening test.
