Telecommunications companies tell us these EMF-emitting technologies are safe and normal. But others are concerned. The film explores whether the effect of electromagnetic frequencies, EMF from antennas, cordless phones, cell phones, WiFi hot spots, etc. produce headaches, anxiety, muscle aches, flu symptoms, cognitive confusion, and visual abnormalities some say are connected to exposure. Bring your questions, your science, and an open mind. Prepare for the Nevada City Planning Commission meeting on cell towers on June 16, 1:30 p.m.. Suggested donation for the film, $6.00 – $10.00.
