FUKUSHIMA 8 OBSERVANCE: POWER LINES


Free Public Screening
Saturday, March 9, 2019, 1-4 PM

Power Lines documentary about Vogtle 3 and 4 from Forage Films

with keynote presentation from
ARNIE GUNDERSEN

Arnie Gundersen is chief engineer of Fairewinds and Associates

NUCLEAR WATCH SOUTH and GEORGIA WAND invite you to a special FREE screening of POWER LINES in observance of the 8th anniversary of Fukushima on Saturday, March 9, from 1-4 PM at the Toco Hill Library in Decatur.

POWER LINES is a new short documentary about Vogtle 3 & 4 construction by Atlanta filmmaker Laura Asherman, founder of Forage Films. The film endeavors to educate Georgians about this little known Vogtle issue, so that as they pay their power bills each month or turn on their lights each day, they understand which lines of power dictate important aspects of their day-to-day lives.

Waynesboro, GA, and surrounding communities have a complex relationship with Plant Vogtle. With over 40% of the population living below the poverty line, citizens recognize the potential economic opportunity the additional reactors offer. Yet attached to that opportunity are environmental and health hazards, not to mention grave concerns surrounding serious flaws in the reactors' design. The film gives voice to concerned community members who feel they shouldn’t have to sacrifice their safety or the health of the land they’ve owned for generations, just because powerful institutions decided to set up a dangerous camp in their backyard.

Following the short film, ARNIE GUNDERSEN, chief engineer of Fairewinds Energy Education will speak about Fukushima, Japan and safety concerns with the AP1000 reactor design under construction at Vogtle 3 & 4. Arnie is a nuclear engineer and whistleblower who appears in the film. He has traveled repeatedly to Japan where he is working with Japanese citizens to monitor for radiation from the Fukushima Dai-ichi meltdowns and we are honored to have him with us as we observe the 8th anniversary of the tragic Tohoku earthquake, tsunami and subsequent triple meltdown of the U.S.-designed Japanese reactors.

Additionally, local activists will give brief updates and presentations on Vogtle and Lindsay Harper, Georgia WAND's executive director will introduce the group's 2017 report Community Impacts At the Crossroads of Nuclear and Climate Injustices In the U.S. South. There will be ample time for Q&A and group discussion. Please join us!

Atlanta Premiere ATOMIC HOMEFRONT

Free Public Screening of Oscar-Nominated Documentary

Atomic Homefront documentary film premieres in Atlanta November 10, 2018, at Toco Hill Library

Saturday, November 10, 2018, 2-5PM
The Meeting Room
TOCO HILL-AVIS G. WILLIAMS LIBRARY
1282 McConnell Drive, Decatur, GA 30033

"A straightforward account of activist battles
over a frighteningly contaminated site."

Hollywood Reporter

"Oscar-nominated filmmaker Rebecca Cammisa shows the effects
of the atomic era on the city of St. Louis, which was home to a uranium-processing center. Lax regulations led to contamination from radioactive waste throughout neighborhoods in North County, and the film follows the citizen-led movement to get to the truth and demand accountability."

Metro.us The 11 Essential Documentaries of 2017

"ATOMIC HOMEFRONT is a both a fiery indictment of systemic inaction
and a tribute to the work of those battling for their families' safety.
Cammisa does a good job of establishing context for the current situations in Coldwater Creek and Bridgeton, as well as acknowledging the sense of urgency. She has directed a film that deftly balances the science behind what is happening in Missouri with the experiences — and emotions — of the residents.
The result should drive awareness and action in audiences."

L.A. Times

Stick around after the film for snacks and
discussion about the nuclear state of Georgia

Georgia premiere screening of CONTAINMENT

Nuclear Watch South observes 6th anniversary of Fukushima catastrophe 3/11/17

On March 11, 2017, Nuclear Watch South presents the Georgia premiere screening of CONTAINMENT

ATLANTA 3/11/17 How can we contain some of the deadliest, most long-lasting substances ever produced? Toxic remnants from the Cold War remain in millions of gallons of highly radioactive sludge, thousands of acres of radioactive land, tens of thousands of unused hot buildings, and  some slowly spreading deltas of contaminated groundwater. Governments around the world, desperate to protect future generations, have begun imagining society 10,000 years from now in order to create warning monuments that will speak across time to mark waste repositories.

CONTAINMENT moves from a nuclear weapon facility in South Carolina where toxic swamps have led to radioactive animals, to a deep underground burial site in New Mexico, to Fukushima, Japan, where a triple meltdown occurred after the cooling systems at the Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant were interrupted, leaving that city a ghost town. The film is part graphic novel and part observational essay mixed with sci-fi that is more science than fiction, weaving between an uneasy present and an imaginative, troubled distant future, exploring the struggle to keep waste confined over millennia.
