Overview

Groundbreaking environmentalist Rachel Carson published her revolutionary tome Silent Spring in 1962, a mere two years before her death from cancer at the relatively young age of 56. In the interim, Carson - who sustained a reputation as a deliberately private and reclusive woman - was forced into an uncomfortable public role as a critic of the use of carcinogenic pesticides. This deeply intimate documentary finds the woman reacting with a mixture of anger and drollness to the attacks against her by the press, the United States government and various chemical producers. Special features include "A Visit with Roger," "A Visit with Stewart Udall," and a segment titled "Lessons from Carson and Challenges Ahead."
