Green Film Festival @UEA - Unfractured

17 May 2019 - 19:30

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".

There will be an introductory talk by Tina Rothery, one of the leading UK anti-fracking activists who has been very active in opposing fracking at Preston New Road in Lancashire.

The screening will be followed by a Q&A with the Director Chanda Chevannes
