Washington D.C. Premiere
FULL SIGNAL (USA, 2009, 62 min.)
Special Sneak Preview & Washington, D.C. Premiere Since 1997 and the onset of GSM telephony, more and more cellular antennas have been popping up in neighborhoods all around the world to support an ever-growing number of cell phone users. In fact they have become so prolific in some parts of the world that they disappear into the landscape with the same subtlety as cars on the street. And those that don’t disappear are cleverly disguised as chimneys, flagpoles or water towers. Full Signal interviews scientists around the world researching the health effects related to cellular technology; activists fighting to regulate the placement of antennas and lawyers and legislators representing the people who want those antennas regulated. Filmed in ten countries and six U.S. states, Full Signal examines the contradiction between health and finance, one of the many tensions of the fight to regulate antenna placement. Written and directed by Talal Jabari.
Discussion with filmmaker Talal Jabari and Angela Flynn, Wireless Radiation Alert Network, follows both screenings. Christine Hoch, Founder and Executive Director of Moms for Safe Wireless will speak after the screening at the Edmund Burke School. Camilla Rees, co-author of "Public Health SOS: The Shadow Side of the Wireless Revolution" will speak after the screening at E Street Cinema.
