“Unfractured” is a documentary that follows biologist and activist Sandra Steingraber, a distinguished scholar in residence at Ithaca College. In the film, Steingraber practices civil disobedience to oppose the storage of fracked gas at Seneca Lake. The documentary was shot by Canadian filmmaker Chanda Chevannes. The film’s world premiere was Oct. 19 at the International Environmental Film Festival in Toronto, Canada, and its international premiere will be Nov. 11 in the “Fight the Power” section at DOC NYC, America’s largest documentary film festival.
