RADIOACTIVE: The Women of Three Mile Island

RADIOACTIVE: The Women of Three Mile Island is a feature documentary about the 1979 Three Mile Island meltdown–the worst commercial nuclear accident in U.S. history.
RADIOACTIVE covers the never-before-told stories of four intrepid homemakers-turned-activists, two women lawyers who took the local community’s case all the way to the Supreme Court, and a young female journalist who was caught in the radioactive crossfire. It also includes not-to-be-missed breaking science on radiation and health.

On March 28th, 2018, at a commemorative protest for the Three Mile Island meltdown that took place on March 28th,1979, Heidi Hutner, Professor of Environmental Humanities at Stony Brook University, met with a group of activist women, Paula, Beth, Linda, and Joyce – “Concerned Mothers and Women” – mothers who were impacted by the nuclear disaster. Hutner learned of the cover-ups and criminal actions that took place at the nuclear power plant (before, during, and after the meltdown) and was inspired to make this compelling film.
