Press

  • The Washington Post
    Handsomely photographed and powerfully argued. . . . Steingraber's scientific cool and unflagging sense of mission make for an arresting portrait of a self-styled modern-day
    Ann Hornaday
  • CineSource Magazine
    An absolute must-see. Excuse my clichés, but Living Downstream is powerful, it is inspiring, it is moving, it is—quietly, like our hero—a tear-jerker. And, upon seeing it yourself, you are likely to make similar exhortations to your friends and family
    Don Schwartz
  • Missoula Independent
    “A convincing and necessary documentary. It’s also, despite its daunting subject matter, a movie you’ll want to watch. . . . A few pitch-perfect moments provide all the emotional force you would expect from a ‘cancer movie,’ minus the unpleasant tang of emotional manipulation.”

    “Living Downstream does an excellent job of engaging the viewer’s curiosity and telling an inconvenient truth through the lens of interesting science and one fascinating woman.”
    Ali Gadbow
  • Toronto Star Review
    Keith Beaty
  • Video Librarian
    Speaking not as an activist-scientist but also as a cancer survivor (facing a possible recurrence), Steingraber's voice carries special authority… Highly recommended.
  • Educational Media Reviews Online
    This is a moving and lyrical film as well as a comprehensible and convincing presentation of the science of toxins and environmental biology… Highly recommended
