Lethal, highly radioactive nuclear waste from decades of nuclear power use will remain toxic for centuries. Locating a final repository for the most dangerous waste man has ever produced is one of the great challenges facing the world today. Experts search for secure, geologically stable homes for these dangerous materials in a global quest riddled with limitations and contradictions. Nuclear power advocates and opponents struggle for solutions with dogmatic attitudes on both sides. Directed by Edgar Hagen. Produced by Hercli Bundi.
Panel discussion, moderated by James M. Acton, Co-Director, Nuclear Policy Program at Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, follows screening. Panelists:В film subjects Judy Treichel and Steve Frishman, Nevada Nuclear Waste Task Force.
