Indian Point Energy Center, an aging nuclear power plant in Buchanan, New York, looms just 45 miles north of Midtown Manhattan. Despite millions of people living in close proximity to a potential nuclear disaster, the facility’s continued operation has the support of the plant’s operators and the Nuclear Regulatory Commission—but a large opposition in the surrounding community, including a vocal anti-nuclear group alarmed by Japan’s Fukushima accident, worry about a catastrophe occurring in the U.S. Capturing the debates for clean energy and the dangerous risks of government complacency, congressional-speechwriter-turned-filmmaker Ivy Meeropol presents a revelatory film about the uncertainties of our nuclear future and our insatiable demands for energy. A First Run Features release.
