"Full Body Burden" the movie is coming
January 22, 2018

Full Body Burden is based on the award winning autobiography of the same name by Kristen Iversen. It tells the horrifying story of the then secret Rocky Flats plutonium pits production facility in Colorado which poisoned workers, residents and the land in the name of "protecting" Americans during the Cold War.

Full Body Burden combines an enthralling personal memoir with a detailed and shocking account of the United States government’s ongoing attempt to conceal the effects of the toxic and radioactive waste released by Rocky Flats, and of local residents’ vain attempts to seek justice in court. Years of protest, lawsuits, and health studies culminated in a dramatic federal raid in 1989, as the FBI and EPA entered the plant to investigate alleged environmental crimes. The lawsuits and investigations that flowed from the raid began to uncover decades of negligence and deception along with the toxic threat lurking in areas where residential development continues unabated.
