Artistry abounds at Uranium Film Festival
This week, Nuclear Hotseat host, Libbe HaLevy, (pictured with Founders/Directors Marcia Gomes de Oliviera and Norbert Suchanek) is reporting from the International Uranium Film Festival in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
Writes HaLevy: “The International Uranium Film Festival is the only place on Earth that presents films focused solely on issues of the entire nuclear fuel chain, from uranium mining to reactors to bombs to nowhere to safely store the highly radioactive waste that results for the necessary quarter of a million years. But these film stories from around the world are told in human terms – with artistry, a quirky sense of humor when possible, and unabashed emotional responses to the terrible radiation truths that have been forced upon the innocent.”
For this week’s program, HaLevy interviewed: Festival founder/director, Norbert Suchanek; director, Julian Vogel (Scotland/Sweden), MISSION: ICBM; and director,Miguel Silviera (Brazil/US), DEVIL’S WORK.
