Nuclear Free Takoma Park Committee Spring Film and Discussion Series

April 5, 2011 @ 10:00 pm - April 6, 2011 @ 12:30 am

film logoPaul Jacobs and the Nuclear Gang is a poignant and potent political documentary that exposes the government’s suppression of the health hazards of low-level radiation. Paul Jacobs is himself a victim of lung cancer, that would kill him before this picture was finished and which his doctors believe he contracted while he was investigating nuclear policies in 1957. He interviews civilians and soldiers, survivors of nuclear experiments in the 50s and 60s, testing the effects of radiation. By the time this film was made, a lot of them had died from the radiation.

Following this showing of the film, by Institute for Policy Studies fellow Saul Landau, will be a discussion led by guess speaker and Senior Scholar on Nuclear Policy at the Institute, Bob Alvarez.
