BOMBS IN OUR BACKYARD (USA, 2009, 20 min.)



Work-in-progress



In production since 1993, the film uncovers a large, local U.S. Army cover-up in the Washington D.C. area of Spring Valley, one of the wealthiest neighborhoods of the nation’s capital, where a forgotten WWI Manhattan Project is being unearthed.  This FUDS (or Formerly Used Defense Site) raises questions of public responsibility, health issues and public safety as officials hunt for our own weapons of mass destruction. Directed and produced by Ginny Durrin. Produced by Durrin Productions, Inc.

Hosted by Chris Palmer, Professor, American University.  A panel discussion follows each screening with Director Ginny Durrin; Paul Walker of Global Green; Mark Baker, Spring Valley Army Historian; reporter Charlie Bermpohl and Dr. Tom Burke, Johns Hopkins Center for Excellence in Environmental Health Tracking and Practice.
