The Santa Fe Art Institute is proud to support The International Uranium Film Festival. The festival aims to raise awareness about everything from Nuclear power to the health effects of radiation. After opening in Rio de Janerio, the festival comes to the USA, playing in Santa Fe’s CCA tomorrow and Sunday.
“Art and Awareness: The International Uranium Film Festival was founded in 2011 in Santa Teresa, the famous artist quarter in the heart of Rio de Janeiro. The aim of the festival is to inform the public, from a neutral position, about nuclear power, uranium mining, nuclear weapons and the health effects of radioactivity. The horror of atomic bombs and those who suffered from them, and nuclear accidents like Chernobyl or Fukushima should never be forgotten – nor repeated. The correlation between nuclear energy and weapons must be openly discussed. The festival inspires discourse about the health and environmental risks of radioactive materials and waste. We seek to educate and activate the public on these issues. The dynamic media of film is an important tool to bring that information to a diverse international public.” Uranium Film Festival
