The Atomic States of America

Join Riverkeeper for a screening of “The Atomic Sates of America” at the Jacob Burns Film Center on November 27 at 7:30pm. Following the screening, there will be a panel discussion and reception with Riverkeeper’s Paul Gallay as well as others featured in the film.

With the Fukushima disaster in Japan reverberating in our minds and the aging Indian Point power plant right around the corner, this alarming film describes the history of American nuclear energy and its dire consequences, especially on our health. Based on Kelly McMasters’ memoir about growing up in the shadow of the Brookhaven reactor, this is an acutely topical cautionary tale and call to action. As McMasters says, “We all live downstream from something.”
