With nuclear power plants back on national and international radar, two new plants scheduled to be built in Georgia, and a new water leak at Fukushima, filmmaker and whistle blower Pradeep Indulka weaves a cautionary tale. High Power is a 27-minute documentary (subtitled in English) on the health and environmental effects of a 50-year-old nuclear power plant in Tarapus, India. The villagers speak of their uncompensated, forced removal from their historic villages, the ensuing cancers, malformed babies, infertility, kidney and heart failures and increases of retardation in their communities. In addition, the absence of the fish they used to catch, eat and take to market, shows the human costs of nuclear power. High Power received a Yellow Oscar Award at the Uranium Film Festival this year in Brazil. This is a unique opportunity to hear directly from the filmmaker after the screening. This film is free and open to the public!
