SF Green Film Fest: 'Dark Circle'

From Rocky Flats to the Eniwetok Atoll, this award-winning 1982 film crafts a complicated science lesson about nuclear weapons into a human-interest story about Plutonium’s deadly intentional and unintentional effects. Roger Ebert said, "It is a record of reckless mishandling of nuclear wastes, criminal disregard for the rights of American citizens being poisoned in their own homes, and bizarre nuclear experiments that resemble nothing so much as a bunch of mad scientists playing with their toys." Now 35 years old, this Emmy Award winner deserves a new look in an age of flippancy about nuclear proliferation.
