The Revolution Starts At Home, now tackles household cleansers and chemical-based hygiene products in his new film Chemerical.

Super Channel Snaps Up Another One of Canadian Environmental Documentarian Andrew Nisker’s Films – Chemerical

Nisker Formalizes Operations and Films For New Production and Distribution Company with This Deal
(TORONTO, ON, Monday, December 14, 2009) Environmental film producer Andrew Nisker’s new film Chemerical will premiere on Super Channel December 29, 2009 at 9 p.m. ET (for more show times see  The recently sold out world premiere of Chemerical at the Whistler Film Festival, highlighted the film’s appeal and significant public interest,  as Nisker returns to the screen, this time to address the high volume of toxins and chemicals lurking in the average home.

Chemerical digs deep to explore the consequences of living in a chemical laden nation by raising the following questions: What are the chemicals doing to us and our environment?  Do we actually need the chemicals lurking in products we use on a daily basis?  What would happen if an average family kicked the chemical habit for three months?  Would their health improve?  What effect will living a chemical free lifestyle have on the environment?  “Our films aren’t necessarily about final answers but are more about inspiring audiences to seek solutions, solve problems and, of course, take action,” says Andrew Nisker, Founder of Take Action Films.

Superchannel previously aired Nisker’s Garbage! The Revolution Starts at Home and picked up Chemerical from Take Action Films, a newly formed production and distribution firm, helmed by Nisker and based in Toronto.  It proudly houses a roster of films by Canadian activist filmmakers who create environmentally focused, thought provoking films.

“We are committed to provide entertaining, informative, and well produced Canadian content to our viewers. Nisker’s insightful films have a balanced combination of drama and satire with a strong message and are packaged in an entertaining way,” said Justin Rebelo, Director of Canadian Programming, Super Channel.

Nisker stated: “I am pleased with how well my new film Chemerical has been received thus far and really charged by the enthusiasm I’m seeing in growing audiences worldwide, who are keen to take in films that address personal lifestyle and environmental impact.  There is a committed interest amongst young Canadian filmmakers to address important environmental topics and issues - and these films need industry support so that they have legs and a louder voice.”

Filmmaker Goes Natural after 'Garbage' Ventures

Special to The Star -
By Ellen Moorhouse, June 13, 2009

Toronto filmmaker Andrew Nisker, along with the people in his movies, has immersed himself in trash over the past several years.

In Garbage! The Revolution Starts at Home, released in 2007, he filmed the McDonald family, who stockpiled their trash for three months, with the exception of green bin refuse, which they weighed and put out for collection. The sobering result: 83 green garbage bags and 145 kilograms of organics.

Now, Nisker is in post-production on his next documentary, Chemerical, in which another family, with three teenagers, goes through their home, eliminating harmful chemical products, such as cleansers, in favour of homemade, eco-friendly concoctions.
