take action film’s latest feature:

Ground war

“Nisker’s Ground War strips away the marketing façade that pesticides are a harmless and necessary tool for manicuring golf courses and playing fields. His personal narrative of his father’s death combined with investigative reporting puts a fine point on the dangers of toxins on our greenways that can’t be ignored and will empower viewers to take action.”
-Priscilla Feral
President, Friends of Animals

“Ground War is a powerful and deeply personal exploration about the links between cancer and cosmetic pesticides. By starting close to home for answers to the causes of lymphoma in his father-an avid golfer-filmmaker Andrew Nisker travels to Scotland and into a golf industry trade show to find answers and alternatives to toxic chemicals. He interviews parent activists in Montgomery County, Maryland fighting for protection from toxic chemicals on lawns and in parks. It’s an inspiring story, with an interactive film website to help find activists near you.”
-Alan Cohen
