A triumphant documentary about resistance, this film follows the biologist and mother Sandra Steingraber as she reinvents herself as an outspoken activist. Branded the 'toxic avenger' by Rolling Stone magazine, Sandra leads a large grassroots movement in a battle to ban fracking in New York State, at a time when her personal life in thrown into crisis. In following Steingraber's personal life, the film presents us with a distinctive and strong female role model, who believes that "the antidote to despair and cynicism is to fight with your whole heart".
This film will be preceded by a talk from one of the UK's most high profile anti-fracking campaigners, Tina Rothery. The film screening will also be followed by an audience Q&A with the filmmaker Chanda Chevannes, who will be travelling over from Canada to appear at the Green Film Festival @UEA in person.
