International Uranium Film Festival coming to DC and New York

If you live in the Washington, DC or New York metro area, please consider attending the International Uranium FIlm Festival. It comes to DC February 10, 11 and 12 and to Brooklyn, NY February 14-19. The DC festival, at the Goethe-Institut, opens with The Atomic States of America (poster at left) which investigates the history and health impacts of nuclear power in several communities around the U.S. It also includes, Nuclear Savage, a documentary that makes a case that the U.S. government deliberately experimented on the Marshall Islanders through atomic weapons testing. Commissioned by PBS, the network has refused to air Nuclear Savage for more than two years, prompting questions about censorship. Admission to the DC festival is free and each evening will include a panel discussion with filmmakers and policy experts. Beyond Nuclear is a co-sponsor of the DC festival. Linda Gunter, Beyond Nuclear's international specialist, will moderate the nuclear power discussion after the screenings on February 12. Read the Beyond Nuclear press release.
