  • "Body Burden" offers the viewer a visual meditation narrated with personal facts and statistical information on chemical pollution in the environment, the narrative becomes our narrative, more about what is happening to us and the world we live in than one woman s life with metastatic breast cancer. Every person alive today carries approximately 250 chemicals within their body, chemicals that didn t exist prior to 1945. This concentration of chemicals within every human being on the face of the earth is called the"body burden," and it is considered our common legacy from the processes of development and industrialization.
