UNBREATHABLE: THE FIGHT FOR HEALTHY AIR
(30 min) US


SUNDAY 10/24, 3:00 PM (SESSION 8)

Director: Maggie Burnette Stogner
Producers: Elizabeth Joy Herzfeldt-Kamprath

Description:

This is a timely, powerful look at fifty years of the Clean Air Act and the challenges we still face to ensure healthy air for everyone. Weaving historical milestones with current day stories of environmental injustice, the film is an excellent tool for educational and community engagement. Asthma is the number one health issue for children, and recent research links air pollution to higher cases and deaths from COVID-19. Environmental regulations and enforcement of existing laws are being stripped away when the need for renewable energy is more urgent than ever. Film was made with support from the American Lung Association, AU’s Center for Environmental Filmmaking, AU’s Center for Environmental Policy, and the Hanley Foundation.
