Powerful . . . haunting.
A convincing and necessary documentary. It’s also, despite its daunting subject matter, a movie you’ll want to watch. . . 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.
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 Rachel Carson.
Director Chevannes succeeds in creating a film that moves beyond tragic circumstances, building a narrative that illustrates the triumph of the human spirit.
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.
A reminder of the magnitude of the problems facing sub-Saharan Africa.
