Brown Bag: Activism through Film and Video

IPS Conference Room 1301 Connecticut Avenue, NW, 6th Floor, Washington, DC, United States

Award-winning filmmaker and IPS Senior Fellow Saul Landau has used the medium of film for over 40 years to move people to action on pressing domestic and global issues. His films have brought to life the turbulent anti-war protests of the 1960s, the life and words of world leaders including Fidel Castro and Dr. Salvador Allende, the effects of low-level radiation on residents of Utah and Arizona, and the negative impact of foreign investments on Mexico’s culture.

Film: Paul Jacobs and the Nuclear Gang

On Link TV

A poignant and potent documentary that exposes the government's suppression of the health hazards of low-level radiation -- even more relevant since the release of radiation from damaged nuclear plants in Japan, and reports that long-term effects of the Chernobyl disaster may have been covered up.
