Mobilize, a Film about Cell Phone Radiation

Mobilize, a feature-length documentary about cell phone radiation, will be released in September, 2014. The film explores the potential long-term health effects from cell phone radiation and examines recent scientific research and the challenges politicians face trying to adopt precautionary legislation. Featuring interviews with experts, wireless industry representatives and prominent politicians, the film illuminates how industry’s economic and political influence can undermine public health. 

The film was directed by Kevin Kunze and produced by Ellen Marks, Joel Moskowitz, and Devra Davis.

The film has been accepted by the 17th Annual California Independent Film Festival and nominated for the Slate Award for Best Documentary Feature. As part of the festival, Mobilize will premiere at the New Rheem Theatre in Moraga, California on Friday, September 12 at 1:00 PM and at the Castro Theatre in San Francisco on Saturday, September 13 at 1:00 PM. Both screenings will be followed by a Q&A session.
