Sierra Club Chronicles
Produced by Greenwald’s Brave New Films in association with Sierra Club Productions, the seven 30-minute segments of Sierra Club Chronicles capture the efforts of ordinary Americans fighting to protect their families, communities, and livelihoods from pollution, corporate greed, and short-sighted government policies. The episodes will run back-to-back with The ACLU Freedom Files, an original series from the American Civil Liberties Union and Brave New Films.
The first episode of Sierra Club Chronicles, “9/11 Forgotten Heroes,” focuses on first responders to the 9/11 attacks who have suffered health problems stemming from hazards at Ground Zero that the government covered up and now refuses to compensate them for. Their stories speak for the many hundreds, perhaps thousands, who gave everything they had to the search and rescue effort, only to get short shrift from their own government.
