On Friday, November 2, at 7 pm in the Park School Auditorium there will be a screening of the new documentary film, UNFRACTURED, by the award-winning feminist filmmaker, Chanda Chevannes.
Premiering in Ithaca last spring as part of the Finger Lakes Environmental Film Festival, UNFRACTURED is a hopeful documentary about speaking data to power. The story follows introspective biologist--and Ithaca College scholar in residence--Sandra Steingraber as she uses science in the service of social change and reinvents herself along the way. Sandra quickly emerges as a leader of New York's biggest grassroots movement in decades as it fights for a statewide ban on fracking. This screening will be preceded by a short presentation by Dr. Steingraber about the role of feminism, science, and civil disobedience in the climate justice movement. Following the screening, Sandra will be joined by filmmaker Chanda Chevannes in a Q and A with the audience. Co-sponsored by the Department of Environmental Studies and Sciences, Women and Gender Studies, and the Roy H. Park School of Communications.
