The News That Matters about the Nuclear Industry

11 November – film examining nuclear industry – “Power Struggle”

Nuclear Power Documentary Film and Panel Discussion Coming to Chatham https://www.capecod.com/newscenter/documentary-film-and-panel-discussion-coming-to-chatham/  November 3, 2017 CHATHAM –The documentary “Power Struggle” will be screened at the Chatham Orpheum Theater on Saturday November 11th,followed by a panel discussion.

The film chronicles the heated political battle to close the Vermont Yankee nuclear plant.

It shows how a nuclear engineer turned whistle blower, a 93-year-old grandmother, and a scrappy new governor, join forces with a wide array of activists to score a major environmental victory by shutting down the aging atomic plant.

The film’s Director will be part of the post film discussion. The documentary, which is at times humorous and frightening, captures the views of people on both sides of the issue.

Producers said one fact in the film that can’t be ignored is that high-level radioactive waste will remain at every nuclear power plant around the world indefinitely.

The film’s world premiere was at The Provincetown International Film Festival. Tickets for this special premier are just $12.
