The Atomic States of America

How safe is nuclear energy? Filmmakers Don Argott (a New Jersey native) and Sheena M. Joyce (The Art of the Steal) take us on a journey to reactor communities around the United States, including the nearby Indian Point Energy Center. This probing film, fresh from its Sundance premiere, includes interviews with Nuclear Regulatory Commission inspectors, investigative journalists, and former government leaders. Their cautions resonate profoundly in the wake of Japan’s Fukushima disaster.
