UNFRACTURED (91 min, 2017) is a triumphant documentary about fighting with your whole heart. It follows Steingraber as she reinvents herself as an outspoken activist and throws herself into a battle for a statewide fracking ban in New York.

Branded a “toxic avenger” by Rolling Stone, Steingraber quickly emerges as a leader of New York’s biggest grassroots movement in decades. Determined to win an uncompromising battle with the oil and gas industry, Steingraber decides she must fight with her whole heart -- devoting all her time, energy and money to the cause. But as the film opens, her personal life is thrown into crisis when her husband begins having one stroke after another. She knows her family needs her at home, but Steingraber can’t stop -- not until she and her allies win a state-wide ban on fracking.

UNFRACTURED was awarded Best Canadian Feature from Planet in Focus.

The film uses Steingraber’s work and life as a way to highlight larger environmental, scientific and political stories. Unlike many environmental documentaries, UNFRACTURED is ultimately a triumphant film, inspiring audiences to fight for a safe and just world.

After the film screens online, audiences will be invited to join a Q&A with Steingraber and Chevannes focused on the power of film to inform and inspire audiences.
