WINDOW ROCK — The International Uranium Film Festival will make its way back to Window Rock, Arizona, the capital of the Navajo Nation, beginning on Novemeber 29, 2018.
The festival features films about uranium mining, nuclear power and nuclear waste. Films from the United States, and othe countries, including Greenland and Japan, will be shown. Several filmmakers will be present. After film screenings, there will be discussions and round tables about the dangers of uranium mining.
One film that is a must see at the festival is “Tale of a Toxic Nation” that is the story of a nation rich in resources but weak in political influence. The Navajo Reservation has been left with over 500 abandoned uranium mines, toxic surroundings and an impossible clean up. The story has never been more relevant under an administration threatening to restart uranium mining in the area.
All showings are Entry Free.
