Less-Cancer-WhelanAwardJon Whelan Film Director Jon Whelan is the director of Stink!, an off-beat documentary about Whelan’s tenacious quest to uncover the source of a chemical scent in a pair of his daughter’s pajamas. Like most Americans, Whelan believed that if a product was on the store shelf then it must be safe. Through his investigation, Whelan discovers a culture of secrecy surrounding carcinogens in everyday consumer products that begins in corporate board rooms and extends all the way to the halls of Congress. Formerly co-CEO of Afternic.com, internet/media start-up advisor, and a founding member of the New York Angels, Whelan currently advocates for truthful product labeling and is a full-time parent of two young daughters.
