Radioactive: The Women of Three Mile Island

April 12 @ 8:30 pm - 10:30 pm PDT


In this thrilling feminist documentary, indomitable women fight back against the nuclear industry to expose one of the worst cover-ups in U.S. history. RADIOACTIVE: The Women of Three Mile Island is an award-winning film, by Heidi Hutner, about the 1979 Three Mile Island meltdown – the worst commercial nuclear accident in U.S. history – and its aftermath. It uncovers the never-before-told stories of four intrepid homemakers who take their local community’s case against the plant operator all the way to the Supreme Court – and a young female journalist who’s caught in the radioactive crossfire. RADIOACTIVE features activist and actor Jane Fonda, whose film, THE CHINA SYNDROME (a fictional account of a nuclear meltdown), opened 12 days before the real disaster in Pennsylvania. The film also breaks the story of a radical new health study that may finally expose the truth of the meltdown. For over forty years, the nuclear industry has done everything in their power to cover up their criminal actions, claiming, as they always do, “No one was harmed and nothing significant happened.”

The film screening will be followed by a discussion with filmmaker Heidi Hutner, moderated by Libbe HaLevy (Producer and Host of Nuclear Hotseat). This film screening is brought to you as part of the “Global Legacies of Anti-Nuclear Activism: Intersectional Perspectives” conference hosted at UCSB (April 11 – 14) in partnership with the International Uranium Film Festival.

Tickets are required, but admission is free. Reserve your tickets here.
