    The Age of Aluminium -Screening – Melbourne Documentary Film Club

    November 9, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

    The Age of Aluminium Film Screening at LOOP Bar Melbourne

    Aluminium is everywhere—beer cans, tinned food, cooking pans, computers, pens, cosmetics, and many medications. Though what do we know about this material? The Age of Aluminium profiles people whose health has been seriously impacted by unwitting exposure to aluminium; along with research exploring how aluminium as a known neurotoxin relates to the growing epidemic of chronic illnesses and disabilities such as breast cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, allergies, and autism. Aluminium mining and manufacturing have also created cataclysmic environmental problems in several parts of the world, as we see the devastating effects of aluminium mining in South America, and environmental disasters in Hungary and the UK. What are we doing with this material? And what can we do now to avoid the continued impacts on our lives and the natural world?

    This film runs for 90 mins, produced in 2013, written/directed by Bert Ehgartner.
