Acid Rain: Requiem or Recovery

Top of page

A film intended to increase public awareness about a growing and serious threat to North America's environment. Acid Rain: Requiem or Recovery looks at the impact of acid precipitation on our woods, waters and wildlife. Graphs, maps and scientific experiments serve to examine what acid rain is, where it originates and how its insidious advance threatens not only the natural life around us, but our man-made environment as well.

1981, 26 min 50 s
