UMass Boston Film Series: Uranium Drive-In
Event Date: April 24, 2014 - 4 p.m.
Event Type: Open to public | Location: UMass Boston Campus Center, 3rd Floor, Ballroom
Uranium Drive-In follows a proposed uranium mill in southwestern Colorado—the first to be built in the U.S. in 30 years—and the emotional debate pitting a population desperate for jobs and financial stability against an environmental group based in nearby a resort town. Without judgment, both sides of the issue are brought to life in heart-wrenching detail as the film follows conflicting opinions and visions for the future. The film offers no easy answers but aims instead to capture personal stories and paint a portrait of the lives behind this nuanced and complex issue.
A Q&A with filmmaker Suzan Beraza will follow the free screening.
