RADIOACTIVE: The Women of Three Mile Island New Film by Heidi Hutner has World Premiere via Nuclear Hotseat

NH #598

This Week’s Feature:

It’s hard to get the full picture of what nuclear is and what it does across to the general public. Isolated news stories, nuclear industry full-press spin, ADHD news cycles, and the public’s general lack of memory obscures the horrible truth about what happens when a nuclear reactor goes off the rails.

Thus it is cause for celebration when a full length documentary appears that tells the nuclear story clearly, completely, with human focus and all the compelling arguments in place. RADIOACTIVE: The Women of Three Mile Island was produced and directed by ecofeminism professor-turned-visual journalist Heidi Hutner.  The film received its world premiere on Sunday, December 4 as part of the Dances with Films Festival in New York.  For Nuclear Hotseat, Joe DeMare conducted on-site “You Are There” interviews with participants in the film and audience members, and Priscilla Star, founder of the Coalition Against Nukes, gave us a report afterwards.
