10 Trailers From the Uranium Film Festival, Coming to Indian Country


The Uranium Film Festival was founded in 2011 in Rio de Janeiro to promote films that address nuclear power, nuclear war, and the troubling legacy that this powerful, terrible use of technology leaves behind. Beginning today, the Uranium Film Festival hits the United States with screenings in and near Indian Country. On November 27 and 28, a selection of eye-opening films will show at the Guild Cinema in Albuquerque; on November 30 and December 1, the Center for Contemporary Arts Cinematheque in Santa Fe will host the Festival; and on December 2-4 the Festival will have its concluding run in Window Rock, at the Navajo Nation Museum.

this is a touchy subject because there is also something called protecting the country and nuclear medicine,and also im not to sure if those protestors are trying to make what ever there doing as some kind of anti native american protest.so whatever that people forget the magnatude if japan would of made its way here then would of came the chinese,but these days i dont think russia would allow asia out gunning their neighbors which isnt just america it is also indian country
